Description:


The COVID-19 Pandemic is an unprecedented disaster of humanity, affected the entire spectrum of human living. All facets of transplantation have been adversely affected, causing precipitous falls in organ donation and transplantation rates and increasing the overall mortality rates of transplant recipients in the year 2020. Despite these challenges, the COVID-19 Pandemic has revealed new opportunities in new models of care and knowledge sharing such as telemedicine, ringfencing at-risk cases, and international communities of practices to share best practices.  

Learning Objectives:


  • Understand the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on organ donation and solid organ transplantation, especially from an Asian perspective.
  • Gain insights into how various transplant programs, especially from Asia, have responded to the COVID-19 Pandemic in terms of ensuring safe organ donation and transplantation as well as ensuring continuity of care for prevalent transplant recipients.

  • Also, share how COVID-19 Pandemic has affected transplant training programs and how transplant educational programs have adapted to the constraints imposed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
