Presented on: Tuesday, June 06, 2023

As donation after circulatory death (DCD) continues to grow to meet the needs of the organ transplant waiting list, so do chances of facing opposition to first person authorization (FPA). Over the course of this discussion, we will discuss the legalities of FPA in DCD cases and review process and language best practices for navigating through these types of cases.

  • Explain the legalities of first-person authorization as it relates to donation after circulatory death
  • Discuss how to algorithmically approach DCD FPA opposition cases
  • Identify sensitive language for OPO’s to use with partner hospitals and families who oppose honoring FPA in DCD cases
