ESOT works with transplant patient organisations throughout Europe to foster cooperation and dialogue between patients and healthcare professionals, to ensure patient representation and participation in ESOT activities, and to promote health and quality of life among the transplant population.
Our activities aim to achieve these goals, and we welcome the contribution and participation of all transplant professionals, patient organisation representatives, and individual patients and caregivers.
The ESOT-ETPO (European Transplant Patient Organisations) alliance is a collaborative entity established by the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) and Transplant Patient Organisations that aims to bring together healthcare professionals and people with transplants.
The mission of the ESOT-ETPO alliance is to promote realistic medicine in organ donation and transplantation. The alliance aims to achieve this by empowering people with transplants, encouraging and facilitating a meaningful dialogue between patients, organ donors and their families, caregivers and transplant professionals to ensure their views and experiences are represented.
ESOT consistently fosters collaboration between patient advocates and healthcare professionals to enhance the health and quality of life of transplant recipients. In line with this objective, the steering group members of the ESOT Patient Inclusion Initiative have coordinated three events to coincide with the ESOT Congress 2023, taking place in Athens from 17-20 September.
Members of societies that are part of the ESOT-ETPO Alliance Network and patient advocates can register to the ESOT Congress and waive their registration fee (in-person or online). To receive more information on how to register, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The decision to invite a patient representative to take on this very important role testifies to ESOT’s commitment to foster cooperation and dialogue between patients and healthcare professionals and to ensure patient representation and participation in ESOT activities.
