This video on “Social and cultural issues of organ transplantation” was presented  by Professor Guido Giarelli, from the Department of Health Sciences at University ‘Magna Graecia’ in Catanzaro, Italy. The video was presented live on January 7th 2022.

With this video we launch our new section: TransplantChild Stakeholders’ contributions, where partners and collaborators of the ERN can share their knowledge, experience and personal views regarding certain aspects of paediatric transplantation. We are always looking for ideas and topics, if you want to know about a particular topic or, even better, can share your knowledge about a topic: please get in contact with [email protected] and we will set a date!

ERN TransplantChild a European Reference Network (ERN) for Paediatric Transplantation, it focuses on both Solid Organ Transplantation (SOT) and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) which are low-prevalence and complex conditions that require highly specialized expertise and resources. In ERNs medical knowledge and expertise travel rather than patients, using a dedicated IT platform and telemedicine tools to review a patient’s diagnosis and treatment.
