On the 14th of August 2017 we were glad to be once more in the beautiful city of Hong – Kong in where we organized the second edition of the Transplant Procurement Management (TPM) course. At the facilities of the Multi-Disciplinary Simulation and Skills Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital 40 health care professionals, physicians and nurses, were granted with the TPM Diploma.
The course lasted for three days; from 14th till 16th of August, and proved to be fully intense and the participants showed great interest in all the activities; lectures and workshops. Several questions and concrete clinical cases were asked and discussed with the TPM experts.
It was perfectly organized by the local team of Transplant Procurement Managers of Hong Kong, leaded by Jenny Koo, and was strongly supported by the Hospital Authorities. Special thanks to the young students who helped during the course development.
Moreover, a gala dinner was organized in where the DTI team was pleased to meet with all the main actors and policy makers at the Health Care System of the Hong Kong area.
During this dinner the experts were engaged in notable discussions on organ donation and transplantation and several formulas toward improvement in Hong Kong were proposed. Exchange of experience and possibilities for further collaboration were discussed.
Thank you to all colleagues and friends in Hong – Kong and we look so forward to the next editions of the TPM course!
