A two-day conference for health care professionals working in transplant and organ donation.
The BCT Education Day organizing committee has designed a two-day education event with the theme of the Journey from Donation to Transplant. The first day will focus on donation-related topics, while the second day will focus on transplantation.
This conference is open to our colleagues in pre and post-transplant clinics, pharmacies, critical care staff, OR staff, and donation and transplant partner organizations.
The event is approved by UBC CPD Accreditation and CME credits will be available to attendees.
When: September 24 and 25, 2018 – 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Where: Chan Centre – Children’s and Women’s Hospital (Tele-conference rooms TBD)
Cost: Free. Refreshments and lunch will be provided at the Chan Centre.
*Note: The sessions will be available via Telehealth for colleagues who aren't able to attend in person. The presentations will also be recorded and made available online following the conference.
