Paediatric Transplantation

European Reference Network on paediatric transplantation (ERN TransplantChild) aims to tackle complex or rare medical diseases or conditions that require highly specialised treatment and a concentration of knowledge and resources.

Pediatric transplantation (PT), such as solid organ transplantation (SOT) or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), is a rare and highly complex procedure that requires a standardized approach to ensure equal access and safe patient care. The unique characteristics of physical therapy, including low case load, early age and low weight, immaturity and plasticity of the immune system, transition from childhood to adulthood, and long life expectancy, require the transfer of specific knowledge, techniques, and innovative medicine to pediatric patients.

 

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

The main aim of this course is the training of medical professionals in the area of paediatric transplantation (PT) with a transversal approach that allows a multidisciplinary view of the most relevant issues in the transplant phases and practical knowledge of best clinical practices.  The latest information on donor graft optimization and engineering, new patient graft tolerance tools, and psychosocial care for families, patients, and healthcare team will allow participants an up-to-date review of pediatric transplantation.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

 

 

Health professionals involved in organ donation and transplantation, particularly those working in referral units, such as: paediatric gastroenterologists, neonatologists, intensive care physicians, surgeons, emergency physicians, paediatric hematologists and oncologists, paediatric nurses, medical assistants, paediatric dieticians and nutritionists, home care providers, paediatric case managers, social workers, and all other physicians who are interested in the diagnosis and treatment of digestive disorders in infants and children.

 

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

 

  • Evaluate in a transversal way the pediatric transplant in all its phases, pre-transplant, transplant and post-transplant.
  • Identify the most relevant issues to favour graft optimization, tolerance, and psychosocial issues 
  • Apply the knowledge acquired through clinical cases of transplant patients
  • Recognize possible gaps in the care of the transplanted patient, and favour tools in medical care that allow better clinical practices.

 

CME ACCREDITATION AND ATTENDANCE CERTIFICATES
