The Transplant Donation Global Leadership Symposium

I'll be in Del Mar for the next few days to speak and hear about transplant practices around the world.
Here's the conference announcement:

The Transplant Donation Global Leadership Symposium is a unique learning experience to explore best practices and innovation to address the most pressing leadership challenges facing the organ and tissue donation and transplantation fields. Robust dialogue and collaborative team work among 75 select attendees build relationships spanning the globe, and participants leave with broadened leadership skills, innovative ideas, and expanded professional networks.
The GLS brings together a faculty of international leaders and innovators in donation, transplantation, leadership, and management. This year the GLS is honored to have Al Roth, the Nobel Prize winning economist whose work in market theory enabled the development of kidney matching algorithms that help make living donor chains possible. Dr. Roth is continuing his work in our field with a focus on public education and donor registries, applying economic science to help identify effective interventions.

Along with Dr. Roth, the faculty will share their knowledge and expertise in order to meet these objectives:
  • Analyze donation systems in place around the globe and develop strategies to improve each element in his/her home country and organization;
  • Explore the distinct skills and roles required for a successful donation program and the interpersonal leadership talents required to ensure seamless collaboration;
  • Identify the cultural and ethical foundations that lead to diversity in donation around the world and ways to bridge these differences to maximize donation everywhere; and
  • Examine leadership opportunities and challenges in emerging donation and transplantation practices.
The following topics will be presented in order to meet these objectives:
  • International Best Practices
  • International Donation Improvement
  • Political, Financial, Legal and Ethical Foundations of Organ Donation
  • Organizational and Operational Elements of Successful Donation Programs
  • Leadership and Team Building
  • Professional and Public Education
