Welcome to the Paediatric Transplantation Course by Nicos Kessaris and Stephen Marks
Stephen Marks and Nicos Kessaris created this course with support from expert contributors; Nizam Mamode, Klara M Pasfay-Barbe, Ryszard Grenda and Jelena Stojanovic. This multi-organ module will consider all medical and surgical aspects of transplantation with respect to paediatric recipients and potential donors.
When planning to undertake this course, you will need to take into account a time investment of approximately 3 hours to view and consider the lectures, and undertake the associated quiz. Each quiz is in a multiple-choice format, and after two attempts, you see the correct answer. Once you have successfully completed each of the quizzes and the EACCME self-assessment, you will be entitled to 3 CME credits. In addition, a selection of author-suggested e-books, congress highlights and publications accompanies this course. If you do not wish to collect CME credits, please note that none of the quizzes or surveys are compulsory. Therefore, you may choose to freely navigate the course in any order at your leisure.
In order to qualify for the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) credits, you are expected to complete the EACCME Self-assessment. You will find this assessment under the tab "EACCME Self-Assessment" in each module. After you have made the assessment, you will receive the certificate by email. We hope you enjoy this course.
This course will provide an opportunity to advance your knowledge on the topic of Paediatric Transplantation, from developing foundation knowledge to building on advanced skills. To obtain your credits, you have to complete the EACCME self assessment.
