The Alliance Advancement Series
Approaching Religion & Donation with Cultural Humility

Presented on: Tuesday, November 10, 2020

While Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) do their best to promote awareness about the religious aspects of organ donation, often declaring that all major religions are supportive, such statements are only partly true. Admittedly, there’s a level of uncertainty that exists within the donation community with respect to certain cultural practices. Nonetheless, OPO professionals are responsible for supporting grieving families in making an informed decision about donation while, in some cases, educating them on their own religious beliefs – often a recipe for disaster. During this webinar, we will explore the complexities of some religious traditions and the general understanding of donation while providing more fruitful strategies for staff to leverage during approaches.
