  • Ocular Research Tissue: From the Eye Bank to the Researcher

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 08/28/2019

    Whether your organization is already involved in this space, or you are considering offering new services related to research tissue, this is the session for you. Register for this session today!

    Eye banks play an important role in ocular research. Eye bank technicians are the first ones to recover the tissue that will be used by researchers and are often the ones who dissect the tissue based on requests and needs. The relationship between the eye bank and the researcher is important and there is becoming more of a need for a strong relationship between the two. During this session, the speakers will discuss how eye banks can become involved in providing research tissue, the opportunities that are becoming available, how to perform certain dissections, and how to work with researchers to fulfill specific needs. Attendees will hear from three eye bank professionals as well as a researcher who works closely with eye banks to get the tissue that is needed for his research. Whether your organization is already involved in this space, or you are considering offering new services related to research tissue, this is the session for you. Register for this session today!

    Dan Stamer, PhD

    Duke University

    W. Daniel Stamer, PhD, currently serves as the Joseph A.C. Wadsworth Professor of Ophthalmology and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University.  Professor Stamer was educated at the University of Arizona, earning his bachelors of science in Molecular and Cellular Biology in 1990 and doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology in 1996.  He completed two research fellowships: the first with Dr. Andrea Yool in electrophysiology and the second with Dr. David Epstein in glaucoma/cell biology.  Professor Stamer started his research program in 1998 at the University of Arizona, where he remained for 14 years, rising through the ranks to full Professor and Director of Ophthalmic Research. He joined the faculty at the Duke Eye Center in 2011.  Notable recent accomplishments include the Rudin Prize for Glaucoma in 2012, the Research to Prevent Blindness Senior Scientific Investigator Award in 2013, election as ARVO trustee in 2015 and ARVO president in 2019. He currently holds prominent editorial positions in three premier ophthalmology journals: as Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics, member of editorial board Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science and executive editor of Experimental Eye Research.

    The primary research focus of the Stamer laboratory is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate conventional outflow such that novel targets can be identified, validated and used for the development of therapeutics that target/modify the diseased tissue responsible for elevated intraocular pressure in glaucoma. Professor Stamer has been working in the area of glaucoma research for the past 25 years, pioneering cellular, tissue, organ culture and murine model systems for use by his laboratory and others to study conventional outflow physiology and pharmacology. His laboratory has worked closely with industry, assisting in the development/pre-clinical testing of several new classes of glaucoma drugs that target the diseased conventional outflow pathway responsible for ocular hypertension.

    Research progress by the Stamer laboratory group is documented in over 140 peer-reviewed primary contributions to the literature and two dozen reviews/book chapters/editorials.

  • Communication That Matters: How Compassionate Language Can Increase Authorizations

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Authorization rates can increase with the utilization of compassionate language, expert navigation of the UDRAI and effective staff training.

    Messages and communications all come down to the delivery. In the donation community, delivery is important when you are speaking with donor family members and next of kin. Compassionate language isn’t always natural for everyone, but it is a necessity when speaking with individuals who lost their loved one just hours before.  By using compassionate language and keeping a calm and steady tone, donor coordinators and call center staff are able to help navigate individuals through a very important discussion during their worst moments.  During this webinar, three experienced eye bank professionals discuss donor authorization phone calls and how to communicate with individuals in a compassionate and effective manner.  

     Through presentations and audio recordings, attendees will learn the following:

    • The importance of compassionate language and how to communicate with compassion
    • Steps to prepare for and lead the call with the next of kin
    • How to navigate next of kin through the UDRAI and sensitive topics
    • Tips for training staff and providing feedback

     Authorization rates can increase with the utilization of compassionate language, expert navigation of the UDRAI and effective staff training. Purchase this session today to learn more!
