Big changes are occurring in kidney and pancreas allocation policy, and across the country transplant candidates and their caregivers want to make sure they understand what the changes may mean for them.
With that in mind, UNOS has updated its brochure on kidney allocation policy, “Questions and Answers for Transplant Candidates on Kidney Allocation.” The new allocation policy goes into effect in December.
In addition, UNOS has developed a brochure on pancreas allocation policy, “Questions and Answers for Transplant Candidates on Pancreas Transplantation.” The new policy will go into effect late summer or early fall.
The pancreas brochure is UNOS’ first on pancreas allocation policy.
Both brochures are available free of charge.
