Aim and Scope of Progress in Transplantation

Progress in Transplantation is the official journal of NATCO, The Organization for Transplant Professionals. Journal Partners include: Australasian Transplant Coordinators Association, and Society for Transplant Social Workers. Transplantation is a highly specialized area of medicine in which state-of-the-art technology, research and innovative techniques combine with the perseverance of health care professionals to create an improved quality of life for individuals with serious and complex medical problems. Progress in Transplantation reflects the multi-disciplinary team approach to procurement and clinical aspects of organ and tissue transplantation by providing a professional forum for exchange of the continually changing body of knowledge in transplantation through the publication of original research, case studies, donor management issues, international papers, review articles, clinical practice issues, and policy papers of interest to the various professional disciplines focused on transplantation.
