Navigating DCD Cases: Fostering Collaborative Partnerships with Palliative Care

Thursday, July 20, 2023, at 2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT / 11:00am – 12:00pm PDT

Recognizing the valuable role that hospice and palliative care team members play in the donation process is critical to optimizing outcomes. However, due to the significant variation in support, OPOs are working to establish stronger, more collaborative [partnerships with their palliative care and hospice teams. How can we optimize the referral process and improve family communication to maximize donation outcomes? Join us as we explore potential strategies for OPOs to consider to effectively integrate their processes with palliative care and hospice protocols.

  • Identify ways to leverage the skills of palliative care providers to effectively inform, educate, and support families about donation.
  • Apply lessons learned to improve hospital referral rates and donor outcomes.
  • Determine the best approach to family conversations when palliative care or hospice is involved.
