New edition of Transplant Coordination Manual

We are delighted to announce the new edition of the Transplant Coordination Manual is already available in print and e-book format. We welcome all our friends, healthcare professionals involved in organ donation and transplantation to purchase it. Contact us at infotpm@tpm.pcb.ub.es


This manual is intended to be a comprehensive handbook to address the problems and challenges that the organ procurement process encounters, from pragmatic solutions to the new trends in this field. It is based on the Transplant Procurement Management (TPM) training methodology that brings together highly qualified international experts to ensure best practice exchange across
the global community.

It embodies the state-of-the-art of the donation – transplantation process. It focuses on the major aspects, duties and professional responsibilities of the TPM: detection, identification and selection of donors, brain death diagnosis, donor management, organ viability, family approach for organ donation, donation after cardiac death, organ recovery organization & preservation
techniques, organ sharing and allocation criteria, living donation, tissue donation, ethics and legislation, as well as the establishment and development of organ donation systems.

The editors would like to acknowledge the support we have received from remarkable national and international authors with a well-known and longstanding expertise in every specific area of the donation-transplantation field, many of them as part of the permanent TPM faculty.

We hope that this manual will become an optimal resource for all the professionals devoted to the human organs, tissues and cells procurement, and help them to strengthen their competences and motivation to save human lives and / or increase its quality.
