Kidney Transplant Outcomes and Quality-of-Life: Where Do We Stand?
We are very pleased to announce the next interactive, online, webinar, ‘virtual classroom’ teaching modules from the Education Committee of The Transplantation Society.
This program is designed as an advanced curriculum in Renal Transplantation to be made available to members of TTS world wide free of charge. This curriculum will be administered through online webinars from June 2015 at monthly intervals. Experts on the key topics in the field of transplantation will present the interactive webinars. The courses will be designed incorporating the new learning and teaching techniques as described in the TTS Distinguished Educator course. The target audience for this series is doctors and trainees, who have a keen interest in advancing their knowledge in renal transplantation. This will enable them to practice the state-of-the-art medicine anywhere in the world. This series will be CME accredited and those who complete the entire series will be awarded the TTS Certificate in Advanced Renal Transplantation.

His research interests are in the areas of access to and outcomes of kidney transplantation using data from both centre- and population-based cohorts. His methodological interests include survival analysis and statistical models for causal inference.
This presentation will review factors that have contributed to changes in long-term kidney transplant survival and their impact on quality-of-life after kidney transplantation, both vs. dialysis and among subpopulations of kidney transplant recipients (e.g., recipients of ECD kidneys).
- To provide an overview of kidney transplant outcomes in the modern era and compare it to prior eras.
- To examine factors that have contributed to changes in kidney transplant survival over time.
- To assess quality-of-life after kidney transplantation and examine factors influencing these measures.
