Updated on Tuesday, January 19, 2021
  • MOHAN Foundation successfully conducted the first one-month online ‘Transplant Coordination Professional Certificate’ course from 2nd to 29th November 2020 on the MOODLE e-learning platform. This training was supported by the Tata Trusts. A total of 43 participants completed the course.  The participants were not only from India, but also Nigeria, Singapore and Malaysia and came from various cadres of healthcare and other professions.


    The participants received access to the course material (40 E-modules) that were made available to them under four sections - week 1, week 2, week 3 and week 4 at periodic intervals. Multiple choice questions (MCQs) were created and incorporated at the end of each module to help the participants assess what they had learnt. The participants were given assignments on topics related to creating awareness about organ donation, case studies (ethics of organ donation), and organ donation pathway and were asked to submit them online before the due date.


    The weekend webinars were held on the Zoom software platform with lectures from experts such as Ms. Sujatha Suriyamoorthi, Manager - Information Systems, MOHAN Foundation, Dr. Sumana Navin, Course Director, MOHAN Foundation, Dr. Suresh Sankar, Consultant Nephrologist, Frontier Life Line and VS Hospitals,  Chennai, Mr. Sivakumar, Senior Manager – Multi Organ Transplant Unit, Dr. Rela Institute & Medical Centre,  Chennai, and Ms. Trilly Rachel Mathew, Transplant Manager, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon, Haryana.


    The interactive webinars helped the participants to speak out and clarify their doubts about various aspects of organ donation and transplantation. During the last webinar of the course, a team of participants got the opportunity to take part in role play as a transplant coordinator (coordinating deceased organ donation in a hospital) and donor family members for the given challenging case scenario. This activity enhanced the participants’ skills in the dos and don’ts in approaching the family of a brain-dead person for organ donation. 


    The final examination was conducted on the e-learning platform and those who passed the examination were able to download their certificates online. The participants gave their feedback and suggestions regarding the course (please click here to view).
