This book is based on the International Congress ‘Ethical, Legal, and Psychosocial Aspects of Transplantation. Global Issues, Local Solutions’ (Rotterdam, The Netherlands, April 2013).
The contributions are an overview of current issues in the field of transplantation ethics.
The topics:

  • Cultural and Religious Aspects of Living and Deceased Donation;
  • Cross-Border Transplants;
  • Psychosocial Care;
  • Autonomy at the End of Life;
  • Public Issues;
  • Children as Donors and Recipients;


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 section within the European Society for Organ Transplantation (www.ELPAT.org).
