Professional Education and Information
IIAM offers educational services and materials about organ donation for research.
IIAM provides surgical training to our recovery partners at a nominal cost. Each year, IIAM hosts 2 Recovery Workshops offering educational training to experienced procurement staff about organ recoveries for research. These 2-day workshops include: a hands-on cadaver lab for surgical skill development, and classroom didactics on the importance of offering the option of donation for research to donor families. The workshop also serves to educate recovery staff about the many purposes of organs for research.
Virtual Education Initiative
We want to be part of your monthly meetings so we’ll visit via Webinar! Using cutting-edge technology while saving time, money and travel troubles during inclement weather, IIAM began hosting educational presentations via webinar in 2009 to bring information to its partners on a regular basis. Please let us know if you would like us to visit. Click here.
Back in January 2007, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced a measurement on organs placed for research. In addition to recovering viable organs for transplantation, organ procurement organizations are now being assessed by CMS for placing organs for research. IIAM continues to identify new researchers to help ensure that each referral translates into an opportunity to advance medical research.
IIAM provides complete educational and informational support for recovery programs and referral sources offering donor families the option of research donation.
