Transplant Resources Toolkit

This toolkit is designed to assist facilities in discussing transplant coordination with patients, as well as give standardized resources to have for yourself and your patients. Our Network goal is to increase overall transplant referrals while reducing an identified disparity.

The goals for this Toolkit are:

  • Provide non-branded resources for facilities with information for both providers and patients
  • Promote best practices and assist in barriers while giving transplant options to patients
  • Have standardization and one location for resources that your facility can contribute to as well

We hope that this toolkit will be helpful to you, your staff and ultimately your patients in our mission to promote education and discussion of improving transplant coordination.
