PAST EVENT: Independent Assessor conference - March 2014

Venue: 
Maple House, Birmingham

The aim of this conference was to inform IAs on the emerging issues and changes happening in living donation. It provided IAs with an opportunity to network; and to share knowledge and good practice by participating in discussions. IAs who attended the full day would have been accredited as enhanced IAs, enabling them to carry out complex case assessments. 

The day consisted of good practice and information sharing through presentations and skills workshops with contributions from fellow IAs; an outline of the HTA Living Donation Regulation Strategy for 2014-17; with guest speakers from relevant organisations such as NHS Blood and Transplant.

Some important notes that were highlighted at the event are below:

  • The conference was free for all registrants.
  • Our aim was to have representation by at least one Independent Assessor from each transplant unit, particularly if they have not attended enhanced IA training. 
  • The main audience for the conference is Independent Assessors, however registrations will be accepted from other professionals and a place allocated if available.
  • Unfortunately we were unable to reimburse any expenses incurred when attending the conference. 

      The speakers were (note links to presentations have been added retrospectively):
