The Ethics Committee of The Transplantation Society will convene
An International Forum on the Care of the Live Kidney Donor
in



Amsterdam

from


April 1-4, 2004

. The National Kidney Foundation (US) will administer this Forum, with physician participation from over 100 leaders from all regions of the world, including kidney transplant experts and leaders from



China

, North and


South America

,


Asia

, the


Middle East

,


Europe

,


Scandinavia

,


Africa

,



Australia

and



New Zealand

.

Participation in the Forum is by invitation only.


 

The purpose of the forum is to
develop an international standard of practice for the care of living donors, including the pre-transplant evaluation of potential donors and post-donation care. The forum participants will help develop published guidelines of care that can be implemented in their area.



 

Live kidney donation can make more transplants possible. The challenge is to do so with an international review that brings the proper care of the donor to attention, not as a source of an organ, but as a patient who undergoes a life giving procedure.
