OPTN recruiting volunteers for new data advisory committee

OPTN recruiting volunteers for new data advisory committee

The Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN) is recruiting members for a new data advisory committee (DAC). The DAC will oversee data-related issues.

We are looking for volunteers with one or more of the following areas of expertise: organ-specific transplantation, data privacy and/or security, internal review board (IRB) process, ethics, patient advocacy, deceased/living donation, transplant administration, organ procurement organization (OPO), and minority awareness. The committee will work on principles of data collection, review requests for patient-identified OPTN data, oversee future data collection proposals, and provide guidance on the dissemination of data results to the research community and public.

Although we are still finalizing the specifics regarding the number and type of members we need, if you possess the background, knowledge, expertise, and interest to serve on this committee or if you know someone who would be a good fit, please complete the biography form and send it to your regional administrator by October 16, 2013. We hope to have a fully staffed committee ready to begin work by late fall.
