Not to be missed @ ESOT 2015, on Sunday, 13 September
Lisa Burnapp EDTCO Chair invites you to attend the

EDTCO Organ Donation Meeting

Can we really meet the challenge of making deceased donation the norm at the end of life?
In the EDTCO symposium, we have invited speakers from across Europe to create a masterclass in the clinical, moral and logistical aspects of this all important question.

Hear the latest expert opinion on end of life care; listen to the views from communication experts, donor families and transplant recipients on what really win hearts and minds in the world of advertising and public engagement; contribute to interactive sessions on family approach and enter the moral maze of ethical debate. There is something for everyone in our all day symposium- make sure you are part of the discussion.
