Welcome to the official website of the Swiss Transplantation Society

Coronavirus: COVID-19  2nd information for transplant professionals

Dear Colleagues,

After one month of COVID-19 epidemic in our country, we wish to update the links to official national and international societies websites. To the best of our knowledge there is at the present time no published randomised trial dealing with COVID-19 and transplanted patients.

Case reports and global reports only start to be published. Therefore, the material and statements that can be found in these links cannot be considered as guidelines for the care of our patients, but as expert opinions, based on available facts and common medical sense. We strongly suggest that, in case one of your transplant recipients is SARS-CoV-2 positive or is hospitalized because of COVID-19, you continue to control his immunosuppressive regimen, work closely with your Transplant Infectious Disease specialist and carefully check for pharmacological interactions with potential off-labels drugs that may prescribed.

The links and documents on Coronavirus made available by the STS are not binding on the STS as far as their content is concerned. These documents are made available to professionals for information and according to the current status of the Coronavirus epidemic. This situation can change very quickly.

INFORMATION : Due to the COVID-19 pandemia, the annual MedArt-congress will be digital: see below:

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen

Aufgrund der aktuellen COVID Pandemie haben wir uns entschieden, die 16. Ausgabe der medArt basel. 20 neu digital stattfinden zu lassen. Zur bestmöglichen Anpassung an die Lockdown Problematik, findet der Kongress bereits am 7. und 8. Mai 2020 und somit früher als geplant statt.

Das bedeutet, dass sich alle Teilnehmenden nicht in Basel sondern in virtuellen Räumen treffen werden. Das Programm wird in einer sehr interaktiven Form stattfinden und umfasst wie bisher auch die ganze Bandbreite der Medizin. Zusätzlich sind brand-aktuelle Sessions zum Thema COVID geplant. Detaillierte Informationen finden Sie hier und auf unserer Webseite.

Aufgrund des grosszügigen Sponsoring unserer Industriepartner und des USB ist die Teilnahme in diesem Jahr für alle kostenlos. Die Anmeldung ist ab sofort verfügbar unter www.medartbasel.ch.

Weitere Details zum Ablauf, zu technischen Voraussetzungen und organisatorischen Aspekten werden wir Ihnen in Kürze zukommen lassen.

Wir freuen uns auf eine spannende digital medArt basel.20 mit Ihnen.

medArt goes digital’ – eine neue Erfahrung der anderen Art….
