IIRTA International Chapters

The Council of the International Intestinal Rehabilitation and Transplant Association (IIRTA) would like to announce the approval of a new policy to promote the development of local chapters within the organization.

The goal of this exciting initiative is to increase international participation of all care providers within the multidisciplinary teams engaged in intestinal failure, rehabilitation, and transplantation. This would be accomplished through educational and research activities to promote the development of clinical and psychosocial management strategies for pediatric and adult patients with intestinal failure who require rehabilitation or transplant. IIRTA invites care providers from all international intestinal rehabilitation and transplant centers to become engaged as active participants through the development of a local IIRTA chapter. Creating a chapter will increase your visibility and local network. Involvement at the local level is important for the consolidation and the growth of our international organization and ultimately affects patient care and outcomes.

View Requirements
  • The local chapter must have a minimum for 5 IIRTA members to establish a chapter. These participants must be current members of IIRTA in good standing as a full member, allied health, fellow/trainee, or international member.
  • The principles and goals of IIRTA History & Mission (tts.org) must be followed by the Chapter with adherence to the Declaration of Istanbul Home (declarationofistanbul.org).
  • Each local Chapter should promote local and regional education through inter- and multidisciplinary scientific work and support career development in the fields of intestinal rehabilitation and transplant.
  • The IIRTA Chapters will have a specific page within the IIRTA website that includes individual Chapter activities and news, pictures, comments, links, and a list of current active chapters. Content will be updated and added quarterly.
  • Individual chapters have the option and are encouraged to develop a local chapter logo which will then be submitted to the IIRTA Council for final approval.
  • Local Chapters can try to obtain administrative support through local transplant societies. www.tts.org/tts-about/tts-nationally-and-internationally-affiliated-societies.
  • Following approval by the IIRTA Council to begin Chapter development, a recognition plaque will be sent to the leaders of each Chapter.
  • The IIRTA Council and IIRTA committee members will actively support all IIRTA chapter activities.

The IIRTA Council hopes you are interested in this opportunity to promote education and science within our field.
