10th Annual Donation and Transplantation Symposium

Registration is now open for the nation’s largest Donation and Transplantation Symposium to be held Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel and Convention Center in Pomona, California. Sponsored by OneLegacy, this 10th annual gathering is expected to attract more than 1,000 hospital and transplant professionals who will share best practices designed to positively impact organ and tissue donation activity in their own hospitals and communities.Topics to be discussed include the role of hospitals in the donation process, patient rights, community collaboration, the diagnosis of brain death, dealing with surgical delays and new innovations in tissue donation. Physicians, nurses, transplant center staffs, pastoral care professionals, palliative care professionals and social workers are among those expected to attend.“Organ and tissue donation is an incredible gift,” said Tom Mone, chief executive officer of OneLegacy, the largest organ, eye and tissue recovery organization in the world. “For 10 years this symposium has brought together health care professionals to share tools, information and innovations with the goal of saving more lives through organ and tissue donation as well as helping donor families find comfort and peace throughout the donation process.” OneLegacy achieved a record-setting performance in lives saved in 2018, with 1,519 lifesaving organ transplants, surpassing the previous mark set just a year earlier. In addition, OneLegacy fulfilled 2,893 individuals’ wishes to be tissue donors, which resulted in more than 150,000 tissues transplanted.
