Training for liver regional review board members

Published on: Monday, August 31, 2015

Members of the liver Regional Review Boards (RRBs) consider all the medical facts submitted with each liver exception score request and determine whether or not to grant a higher score.

Dr. Ryutaro Hirose, Chair of the OPTN/UNOS Liver & Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee, will present a RRB educational webinar on September 10 from 3:00-4:30 ET.

During this webinar, Dr. Hirose will discuss the purpose of the RRB, go over member roles and responsibilities, and give guidance on what to look for when reviewing exception applications.

While this webinar was designed for RRB members in order to standardize the exception review process, it may be useful for liver center personnel who write exception justifications.
