15th Congress of the International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement, Dubai

DTI representatives participated in the 15th International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement (ISODP) Congress held in Intercontinental Festival City (Dubai) during November 14th – 16th. It was a big reunion where they had time to catch up with friends, colleagues and future partners.

They presented nine abstracts during the different sessions including those related to educational European projects, International Master in Donation and Transplantation and the training programs in China. There was also representation from our colleagues of Saudi Arabia presenting the results of the project of Quality Management Implementation and the long-term relationship with SEHA (Abu Dhabi Health Services).

Mafraq Hospital in Abu Dhabi deserves a special mention as their Organ Procurement Unit (OPU) was recognized with the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Certification. Credits go to their TPM team hard work during the past few months in developing and implementing Standard Operational Procedures (SOPs), and the collaboration between SEHA and DTI Foundation.
