The Alliance Advancement Series
Honoring the Gift Through Donor Care Units: Exploring the Pros and Cons of Different Models

Presented on: Tuesday, April 04, 2023

Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) are exploring the best approach to developing a Donor Care Unit (DCU) within their service areas to improve organ viability, increase the number of organs recovered per donor, and provide better care of the donor and the donor’s family. Over the course of this discussion, we will welcome three OPOs who will share their experiences as it relates to the implementation of their DCUs and their improved outcomes.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of how donor care units can significantly improve donor outcomes.
  • Determine the best approach for their OPO to consider when establishing a donor care unit.
  • Identify alternative, more cost-effective options for OPOs to consider when developing a donor care unit.
