Minimizing Allograft Rejection in Renal Transplantation – Applying the Evidence to Real-World Scenarios

CME: 1.0

Program Overview

Although individuals who receive kidney transplants have high rates of survival—both for themselves and their grafts—at 1 year, clinicians continue to face challenges in preventing rejection and maintaining these outcomes over the long term.

This Community Practice Connections™ program provides an in-depth review of some key highlights from a live satellite symposium presented during the American Transplant Congress, which was held in June 2021. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician. This program both focuses on the practical aspects of managing kidney transplant candidates and recipients and puts recent clinical trial data into clinical context. It is designed to provide pertinent clinical information for those who did not attend the live event and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review mechanisms of renal transplant rejection that may offer targets for therapy
  • Develop management plans using current and emerging therapies for desensitization of patients undergoing renal transplantation
  • Apply strategies to improve adherence to treatment regimens following renal transplantation
