The Alliance Conversation Series
Investigating the Variations in Donation after Circulatory Death Hospital Policies in a Single Donor Service Area

Presented on: Tuesday, July 19, 2022

The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.

The Alliance is not an advocacy organization and always intends to maintain an objective and unbiased perspective.

Sessions are designed to be approximately 30-45 minutes in length and encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: Historically, there has been wide variation among hospital policies for donation after circulatory death (DCD) processes. With more DCD donors as well as more organs from DCD donors being utilized, it is time to revisit the variability in DCD hospital policies. Our speaker will explain what methods were utilized in this study, results, and conclusions on how the study can help to impact DCD donation outcomes.

  • Describe the standard elements of donation after circulatory death hospital policies
  • Summarize the areas in which donation after circulatory death policies vary
  • Compare current hospital policies with recommendations on best practices for hospital policy development
