Kidney Transplant Group

Chair: Dr. Jeffrey Zaltzman

The purpose of the CST Kidney Transplant Group is to advance the practice of kidney transplantation in Canada, through:

  1. Attention to national issues in kidney transplantation (e.g. donor management/organ allocation/listing criteria/organ sharing) including the setting of guidelines, standard protocols, and policies.
  2. Promotion of kidney transplant research.
  3. Development and support of national kidney transplant registries (Live Donor Paired Exchange and the Highly Sensitized) and databases.
  4. Education (promoting professional development including fellowship programs and other educational programs).
  5. Advocacy for patients who require or have undergone kidney transplantation.

To this end, a group of professionals who have an interest in kidney transplantation in children and adults will meet regularly to discuss and address issues important to this purpose, which shall include clinical, research, educational, ethical and social/advocacy issues relating to transplantation.
