Original Webinar Information
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.
At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:
- Express the value of cultural competency in helping staff to be knowledgeable on matters of religion.
- Describe the value of cultural humility in understanding the undeniable diversity within traditions and by individuals.
- Identify the best practices associated with addressing the religious beliefs of potential donors and their families.
