The Liver Listing and Allocation Forum was an important step in the collaborative work of the Canadian Liver Transplant Network (CLTN), the Canadian Society for Transplantation (CST), and Canadian Blood Services. The purpose of the Forum was to identify, review, and build on current listing and allocation strategies for liver transplant with a view to developing interprovincial/territorial policies for Canada. The ultimate goal was to achieve consensus to ensure fair and transparent access based on the identification of leading practices, leading to improved system performance.
