This book is based on the International Congress "Organ
Transplantation: Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects. Expanding the
European Platform" (Rotterdam, The Netherlands, April 2010).
The contributions are an overview of current issues in the field of
- Organ Tourism and Paid Donation;
- Legal and Ethical Boundaries for Organ Transplantation;
- Diverse Populations;
- Deceased Donation;
- Psychological Care for Living Donors and Recipients;
- Samaritan / Unrelated Donation;
are discussed among ethicists, clinicians, psychologists, lawyers
and policy makers in the field of organ transplantation.
The ELPAT platform was initiated with the aim to establish
continuity in European communication on 'Ethical, Legal and
Psychosocial Aspects of Organ Transplantation (ELPAT)', after
several ad hoc conferences had been organised in the last two
decades. ELPAT aims to facilitate and structure the European
research area in this field of science. It is now an official body
within the European Society for Organ Transplantation (www.elpat.org).
