Lunch/refreshments from 12:30. All welcome.

Much of the evidence used to inform the development of organ transplantation in the UK comes from analyses of observational data that make up a centrally maintained registry. After a brief overview of the UK Transplant Registry, maintained by NHS Blood and Transplant, the use of this Registry in the development of a new liver allocation scheme will be described and illustrated. The talk will cover the formulation of an allocation scheme based on transplant benefit, the need to adjust survival models that underpin the scheme to account for informative censoring, and the relative merits of new allocation arrangements. The use of updated marker data on disease severity, and the development of an index of the quality of a donated liver will also be described.
