Upon completion of the e-learning, the surgeon:

  • will have a complete understanding of the preparation, procurement and aftercare phase of abdominal multi-organ donor procurement surgery (DBD);
  • knows the correct steps for retrieval of the kidney, liver and pancreas considering several anatomical variations;
  • knows how to cooperate with the team with the appropriate attitude and behavioral skills.


The e-learning comprises eleven chapters. Each chapter:

  • discusses a main aspect or part of the procedure;
  • is divided into several sections, each dealing with a specific sub-topic. These sections may be subdivided into several steps or screens, depending on the extent of the topic;
  • can be studied separately and at different time points. The program ‘naturally’ follows a sequential routing according to the sequence of the procedure and favors completion of all steps and interactive exercises to allow continuation, but free navigation is possible too;
  • includes interactive exercises with relevant questions that have to be answered to allow continuation (unless deliberate navigation to other steps) and completion;
  • is supported by visualization of the surgery using drawings, photographs and video-clips with voice-over (English).
  • provides extensive feedback to the trainee.
