Guide to the quality and safety of organs for transplantation.

Transplant medicine and transplantation have progressed during the last decades in a way that nobody would have imagined before. The transplantation of organs offers major therapeutic benefits and improvements to quality of life and is, in many cases, the only life-saving treatment for end-stage organ failure.

This new 6th Edition of the Guide collates updated information to provide professionals identifying organ donors, transplant co-ordinators managing the donation process and transplant physicians responsible for organ allocation and utilisation with a useful overview of the most recent advancements in the field.

It is intended to provide easy-to-use information and guidance to all professionals involved in donation and transplantation of organs so as to maximise their quality and to minimise risks and, thereby, improve the success rate of transplants.
