2SLGBTQIA+ Patient & Public Advisory Team for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Organ Donation and Transplantation in Canada

Study Lead

Dr. Murdoch Leeies

University of Manitoba

Overview

Dr. Murdoch Leeies‘ team at University of Manitoba is forming a 2SLGBTQIA+ patient/family advisory team and is looking for interested people who have been involved with the organ donation or transplantation system. If you are a 2SLGBTQIA+ identifying person who has been a living organ donor, a solid organ transplant recipient or the substitute-decision maker or caregiver of a 2SLGBTQIA+ person who was considered for donation after death (whether they did or did not donate) then they hope you will consider registering your interest to participate.

The team hopes that your engagement will help them to design research as well as policies that can improve equity for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in our health system. We greatly value your participation.
