Areas Where We Work
As our Mission states, we work to reshape public perception, encourage best medicine and give a hand up. You will find information on how we are changing public perception and encouraging best medicine in our Resources pages. We will use these pages to share news about our work.
In the boxes below, hover over the photos to read about our plans to offer services at no charge that will help to mitigate barriers to the transplant list caused by the lack of social conditions.
In late summer 2018, Trillium Gift of Life Network is planning to assess patients with liver failure caused by alcohol use disorder without any alcohol free period for the first time in the history of liver transplantation in Canada. The assessment will look at the patient's medical condition. It will also take into account several psychosocial factors, which could include social conditions.
Before the program launches, we will be working to see which conditions we can assist with, to improve waitlist opportunities. The boxes below talk about some of the areas we are expecting they will look for, and some that may help people post transplant find new ways to enjoy life.
