ESOT Action Day 2022
Featuring leading voices from around Europe, this Think Tank has been specifically designed to discuss and address inequalities in organ transplantation across Europe. During this session, we will be covering a variety of inequalities associated with access to treatment and HCP and patient education, with the goal of reaching a consensus on a set of recommendations and actions aimed at supporting existing EU initiatives to improve service delivery and sustainability. ESOT will then take these action points and work with its partners and networks to facilitate and drive change in existing inequalities.
The event will feature presentations from policymakers and key opinion leaders from the field of organ transplantation:
