Solid Organ Transplant
The Solid Organ Transplant (SOT) SIG is for members of SPP who have shared interests in pediatric end stage organ disease and solid organ transplantation. These interests include clinical work, research, and program development, and encompass heart, liver, kidney, lung, multivisceral, and other solid organ transplants.
- Promote evidence-based care and sharing of novel treatment approaches among pediatric psychologists working with pediatric transplant populations.
- Disseminate relevant evidence-based resources, including presentations, peer-reviewed publications, reports, resources and tools.
- Encourage and mentor students, trainees and early career professionals to be the next generation of leaders in the pediatric psychology field.
- Educate clinical professionals about the psychosocial issues which may affect the child or family along the transplant journey.
- Encourage multidisciplinary collaboration among professionals serving children, adolescents, and young adults with end stage organ disease and solid organ transplants.
