National Liver Review Board Policy: MELD/PELD Exception Scoring


UNOS recommends completing this course before attending the Live Webinar on December 13

Summary
The National Liver Review Board (NLRB) will be implemented in early 2019. In addition to creating the structure of the NLRB, the policy also establishes a new method of assigning MELD/PELD exception scores for candidates meeting the criteria for standardized exceptions. This offering explains the new MELD/PELD exception scoring that will be implemented with NLRB. A separate, live event on December 13 will explain the operation of the NLRB and the new process of submitting exception requests. We recommend completing this course on MELD/PELD exception scoring before viewing the webinar.
