Etpod Dissemination

The ETPOD Dissemination project

European Training Program on Organ Donation (ETPOD) is a successful training program by creating quality materials with the support of the participating organizations and the recognition of the European Commission (Action Plan on Organ Donation and Transplantation, 2009-2015).

It identified the educational needs of healthcare professionals involved in the organ and tissue donation process and implemented effective training programs with a positive impact upon donation parameters.

ETPOD Dissemination Project is part of a dissemination strategy that has been developed to ensure the continuity, transferability and dissemination of the European educational program to all stakeholders involved in organ donation. In this respect, a friendly, easy to use database has been developed to enable all stakeholders to upload and access the Essentials in Organ Donation (EOD) seminars related information, follow up and foresee the training impact on organ donation.

Due to program feasibility, ETPOD participants continued to carry out EOD seminars and train healthcare professionals in organ donation. Moreover, new organizations representing large populations and extended geographical areas have expressed their interest to implement the ETPOD training programs in their countries.

We welcome you to join our wide network and benefit from accessing the training programs in organ donation!
