Original Webinar Information

Whether it’s the hospital making a consult to their respective OPO, or an OPO initiating a conversation with a family whose loved one is eligible for organ and/or tissue donation, timing is EVERYTHING! In Part I of our authorization series, our panelists will provide an overview of some of the latest best practices that have been put into place throughout Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network’s Donation Service Area to ensure both timely referrals from hospitals and the timeliest conversations with families, which ultimately led to a record year in total number of organ donors at Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network in 2021.

  • Identify best practices established by an OPO and hospital partner(s) to ensure both timely referrals and family conversations and understand their impact on donation outcomes.
  • Summarize the impact that changes in an OPO’s referral management process has on utilization of OPO staffing resources, as well as family conversation timing and donation outcomes.
  • Recognize the importance of collaboration across departments within an OPO to optimize the referral management process and opportunities to most effectively serve and support families in a hospital setting.
