1st TransplantChild Course
“A transversal approach on Paediatric Transplantation”

09th of May 2019 -  La Paz University Hospital - Madrid Spain

The main aim of this course is addressing training for medical professionals in the area of paediatric transplantation (PT) with a cross-cutting approach that allows a multidisciplinary view of most relevant topics in the phases of transplant and the practical knowledge to better clinical practices. This course provides skills to perform a common and transversal approach to all types of PT procedure. The latest information on the donor graft optimisation and engineering, new tools of patient allograft tolerance, and families, patient and healthcare team psychosocial care will enable participants to review and update in paediatric transplantation.
