Siva Shankar, Marketing Coordinator and Mrs. Elizabeth Prasanna, Programme Associate. The guest speakers who contributed were Ms. Rathi R, Transplant coordinator and Clinical Nurse Specialist, PSG Hospitals, Coimbatore and Mr. Gipson John, Chief Transplant Coordinator, Aster Group of Hospitals, Karnataka. The webinar enabled participants to clarify their doubts with the faculty.


    A ‘Role-play’ was organised in an attempt to give the participants an opportunity to have an hands-on experience on approaching families for organ donation. The faculty included Lt. Col. Sandhya V Nair (Retd), Deputy Nursing Superintendent, Medanta-The Medicity (Gurugram), Ms. Mayuri Barge, Manager- Organ transplant program, Dr. D. Y. Patil Hospital (Pune), Mr. Prakash K, Senior Transplant Coordinator, MGM Healthcare (Chennai) and Mr. Yuvaraj Boopathi, Transplant Coordinator, KIMS Hospital (Secunderabad). The participants were divided into four groups using the breakout rooms. The faculty in each group narrated a challenging situation to the participants and invited them to share their perspectives. The session was wrapped up with observations and feedback shared by the faculty. Thus, the roleplay enabled the participants with a deeper understanding of the roles, responsibilities and challenges faced by transplant coordinators while approaching families for organ donation and helped preparing them for their career in the field of organ donation and transplant coordination.

    At the end of the 4-week training period, an online examination was conducted. A total of 28 out of 30 candidates passed the exam and received their online certificates. The participants also shared their feedback and a few are shared below:

    1. Jennifer Deepak, Transplant Coordinator, Aykai Hospital, Ludhiana 
      I am truly happy to be part of this short TCPC course and even though I’m working as a Transplant Coordinator but still some of the points which were not clear to me has been made clear through this course. The modules were very effective and the webinars helped me to learn more practically. The best part I found knowledgeable was the cadaver transplant details, being a part of this course made me more confident and the MCQs present after every topic helped me to know my level of understanding. I am really thankful to my director for giving me this chance and making me learn all the concepts by a well professional trained team. I wish I could also be the part of the MOHAN Foundation E Learning Programme and be a trainer. I will try to pursue the post graduate course too in the coming year.

    2. Vinod A.P, Clearmedi Radiant Hospital, Mysore 
      I thank all your faculty members for providing me with this wonderful opportunity to be a part of this program. This program has been a wonderful experience and has helped me immensely. I am grateful to all the faculty members at MOHAN Foundation for the effort in sharing knowledge and working towards a noble cause.

    3. Dr. Megha Thapa, Physician Assistant, Apollo Medics Super Speciality Hospitals, Lucknow 
      My experience of transplant coordination professional certificate has been amazing. The depth to which Transplant Coordination was explained to us was very impressive. Webinars were really informative and interactive with case discussion and role playing. I am really happy to have taken this course. The faculty is really nice and inspiring. I wish to follow on their footsteps and do justice to this profession.
