Kidney Allocation System

Effective December 4, 2014, the national Kidney Allocation System (KAS) has changed. UNOS’ new KAS training module is one of the latest available tools to help educate both transplant professionals and patients waiting for a kidney transplant about the upcoming changes.

Transplant professionals can use this module as a guide to talk to their patients about the upcoming changes and patients can also access it themselves to learn more about how the changes will impact them directly.

“KAS: What Your Candidates Need to Know” is a 15-minute training module in both English and Spanish on the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network website. The videos are available to view in the WEBINARS section of the website.
