The Allied Health Professional Committee (AHPC) aligns its mission with that of IPTA to advance the science and practice of pediatric transplantation and to improve the health of all children who require transplantation through the various subspecialties of this group, including nursing, nutrition, psycho-social health, developmental, physical and occupational therapies and pharmaceutical management. Under the auspices of IPTA, the AHPC is dedicated to promoting advances in these inter-professional specialties to improve outcomes for all children who receive transplants and their families and to advocate for their rights as transplant candidates and recipients.
