ITNS Statement on Racial Inequality



The International Transplant Nurses Society (ITNS) strongly stands on the foundation of equality for all. Equality for every human being, regardless of race, economic status, gender, age, creed, or sexual orientation is at the core of who we are.

The recent events surrounding George Floyd’s tragic death has enhanced the spotlight on the issue of racial inequality, specifically with the African American community. As nurses, we believe that the conversation must continue towards concrete action to address racial disparities and to assure that social determinants of health are actively and intentionally addressed within the United States’ healthcare system.

Novel, Non-Invasive Surveillance Testing for Transplant Recipients
Supported by: CareDx

Non-invasive biomarkers to assess for active organ injury in the transplant patient is one of the unmet needs in long-term surveillance.  Current assessment via functional markers may not assess active injury or often don’t become elevated until irreversible damage has occurred.  Donor-derived, cell-free DNA (AlloSure) is available now to the transplant community to address this need.  Please join Dr. Sandra Carey, PhD, MPH, CCRN, ANP-BC, FHFSA, from Baylor-Scott & White at the ITNS lunch symposium to explore this topic further.
