The National Donor Management Summit brings together national and locally recognized experts in the field of donation and transplantation to share and discuss how to effectively integrate organ donor management practices throughout the continuum of care.

This year’s National Donor Management Summit will be a collaborative meeting, focusing on discovering what is possible when we work together and share successful strategies so that we can continue to maximize every donation opportunity to save and heal more lives.

During the Summit, topics that will be shared and discussed include challenges to brain death, lung management, OPO and advanced practice practitioner relationships, imaging and data sharing, DCD, providing outcomes to Intensivists, and public health issues and the impact on donation.  

NEW FOR 2019: We are proud to offer the Organ Donation Advanced Seminar for Standardized Clinical Education (ODASSCE) in combination with the National Donor Management Summit. ODASSCE will be hosted on Wednesday, September 4, 2019, prior to the National Donor Management Summit.
