Abstract

Live donor kidney transplantation is the best treatment option for most patients with late-stage chronic kidney disease; however, the rate of living kidney donation has declined in the United States. A consensus conference was held June 5–6, 2014 to identify best practices and knowledge gaps pertaining to live donor kidney transplantation and living kidney donation. Transplant professionals, patients, and other key stakeholders discussed processes for educating transplant candidates and potential living donors about living kidney donation; efficiencies in the living donor evaluation process; disparities in living donation; and financial and systemic barriers to living donation. We summarize the consensus recommendations for best practices in these educational and clinical domains, future research priorities, and possible public policy initiatives to remove barriers to living kidney donation.

He has been appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia to honour his pioneering work developing practices about organ donations and transplants.

Originally from England, the now 60-year-old doctor moved to Australia in 1987. He told Fairfax Media he was drawn to the niche field of kidney transplants because of the promise of the emerging field...
