Feb. 24 webinar addresses new policies aligning with PHS guideline

Members of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network’s Ad Hoc Disease Transmission Advisory Committee will lead a webinar on upcoming changes to align OPTN policies with the 2020 U.S. Public Health Service Guideline for assessing solid organ donors and monitoring transplant recipients for HIV, hepatitis B (HBV), and hepatitis C (HCV). The webinar will take place Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 4 to 5 p.m. EST.

Registration for the webinar is available here. Additional information about the policies, most of which will be implemented March 1, is available here.

The webinar will guide participants through the changes and address common questions already received from OPTN members about implementation. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask any additional questions at the end. The webinar will be recorded and made available for later review.
