The Donation Conversation as a Process: How Research and Experience Can Be Used to Develop Evidence-Based Standards of Practice

Presented on: Tuesday, January 10, 2023

This webinar will highlight the impact of referral timing and assessing family readiness to make a donation decision. We will review the donation conversation in relation to evidence-based research. Experiential-based practices will be compared and contrasted to prompt group discussion in examining what OPOs have learned from research, where improvements can be made and where more research can offer benefit to both potential donor families and recipients. Ways of implementing evidence-based and standards of practice into organizational processes will be discussed along with how OPOs and hospital staff may best work together to support mutually familiar and understood standards of practice to assure every potential donor family has the opportunity to make a timely and fully informed donation decision.

  • Describe the scientific evidence and best practices for family donation discussions about solid organ donation
  • Utilize experiential- and research-based evidence to implement family donation conversation standards into OPO processes to improve rates of family authorization and the family experience.
  • Distinguish how OPOs and hospital healthcare teams can partner to utilize donation conversation standards of practice to create the opportunity for every potential donor family to make a timely and fully informed donation decision.
