2022 Webinar: Addressing Inequities in Access to Liver Transplantation
There has been increasing national awareness of systemic racism and oppression of communities of color in the United States. Systemic racism negatively impacts health outcomes and has also played a role in decreased access to specialty care, liver transplant waitlist, receipt of liver transplantation and post-transplant outcomes. Patients of color are disproportionately less likely to be listed for liver transplant or to undergo transplantation. This webinar is intended to increase awareness of the barriers patients experience in the liver transplant process and propose strategies to increase access to liver transplant.
