UNOS Transplant FAQ for Patients & Guidance for Physicians

The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) has developed an 8-page brochure on Frequently Asked Questions about Kidney Transplant and Listing.  It’s intended to help pre-dialysis CKD patients consider their treatment options, but will be helpful to dialysis patients as well.  It complements an earlier white paper for physicians on Educational Guidance on Patient Referral to Kidney Transplantation.  Both documents can be found at https://www.unos.org/brochure-addresses-patients-questions-about-kidney-evaluation-and-listing/ .  For more specific information about qualifying for a transplant at a center in our Network, see the Transplantation Selection Criteria page on our website at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/treatop/txselcrit.html .
