CDTRP Special Seminar: Canadian ODT Project Presentations

The CDTRP in cooperation with the Organ Donation and Transplantation Collaborative (ODTC) and Health Canada, invites the community to participate in a special event on Sept. 16 at 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. The event will welcome five Canadian research projects that were recently funded by the Healthcare Policy Contribution Program in 2019.

Funded projects include:

  1. Implementation and evaluation of an electronic patient-reported outcome measure platform in pediatric transplantation
  2. Improving Engagement and Empowering Patients through their Transplant Journey
  3. Legislative Strategies to Improve Deceased Donation in Canada: A Special Focus on Evaluating the Impact of Opt-Out Legislation in Nova Scotia
  4. Implementation of Donation Advisor, a personalized clinical decision support tool for improved efficiency and effectiveness of deceased organ donation and transplantation
  5. A.C.T.I.O.N: Improving Access to Living Donor Kidney Transplantation (LDKT) in Ethno-racial Minority Communities in Canada

Lead investigators from each group will be invited to present a 15-20 minute overview of their work highlighting the project’s potential to transform the organ donation and transplant landscape in Canada. Following all presentations, there will be an optional Q&A session for attendees.
