WEB160419 - Kidney Allocation System Update: Where Are We So Far?


Apr 19, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Apr 19, 2016 3:00pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $25.00

Description

Moderator: Nicole Turgeon, MD

The Kidney Allocation System (KAS) was markedly revised on December 4, 2014, resulting in a major early alteration in national kidney distribution. Since a major objective was to provide equity in access to challenged candidates while not compromising vulnerable populations, and allowing for the bolus effects, this presentation will examine first year outcomes and assess the success in meeting the projected KAS goals.

After participating in this webinar, the learner will be able to:

  1. Identify the changes in kidney transplant distribution across recipient categories
  2. Distinguish the changes which will be maintained at a new level following the resolution of the initial bolus effect
  3. Begin to formulate potential modifications to KAS which would further achieve equity in allocation
