Overview and Objectives of the Meeting
Studies in Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT) is a unique multi-disciplinary, multicenter consortium focused on optimizing outcomes in pediatric liver transplantation through research, advocacy, and dissemination of best practice in this field. SPLIT is the only such academic body dedicated to pediatric liver transplantation and the SPLIT Annual meeting allows SPLIT members from 40 North American pediatric liver transplant centers and international participants from the field, to update their knowledge on current findings in the field of pediatric liver transplantation and incorporate these findings into their own practice. Upon completion of this year’s program, participants that include pediatricians, hepatologists, pediatric surgeons and transplant surgeons will be able to:
- Examine new diagnostic and therapeutic options for cytomegalovirus infection
- Recognize the role of ERCP in pediatric sclerosing cholangitis and transplant
- Consider options for quality improvement and assessment in liver transplantation
- Analyze the challenges of autoimmune liver disease
- Review the latest research in pediatric liver transplantation
- Recognize and manage patients with cardiac disease
- Explore the role of telemedicine in pre and post transplant care
- Review the latest information about liver tumors
- Analyze the role of DCD in liver transplant allocation
The target audience for the SPLIT Annual Meeting includes hepatologists, transplant surgeons, transplant coordinators, research coordinators, and data coordinators.
The faculty for the SPLIT Conference come from across North America and are experts in the field. Faculty details forthcoming.
