The European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) has created a platform for the development of rigorous and regularly updated evidence-based guidelines for clinical practice in the transplantation field. A dedicated Guideline Taskforce, including ESOT-council members, a representative from the Centre for Evidence in Transplantation, and editors of the journal Transplant International has developed transparent procedures to guide the development of guidelines, recommendations, and consensus statements. During ESOT’s first Consensus Conference in November 2022, leading experts will present in-depth evidence-based reviews of nine themes and will propose recommendations aimed at reaching a consensus after public discussion and assessment by an independent jury.

An extensive literature review of each topic was conducted to provide final evidence and/or expert opinion.
