DCD National Best Practices & Approaches Workshop

SAVE THE DATE: August 15, 2024 | Presented Virtually

This one-day virtual workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of key concepts and effective practices to build successful donation after circulatory death (DCD) processes and procedures within partner hospitals, as outlined in the new Alliance DCD Resource Guide. Together, we will introduce 10 essential areas of focus, ranging from regulatory and accreditation compliance, to enhancing a successful hospital DCD program.

NOTE: This workshop’s intended focus will be on general DCD practices. If you are interested in more specialized content surrounding Normothermic Regional Perfusion (NRP), please refer to our On-Demand Learning Pathways here.

The objectives of this workshop are as follows:

  • Provide regulatory and legal considerations and historical information about organ donation practices, including DCD, and its impact on the donation and transplantation crisis in the United States.
  • Define donation-related performance measures
  • Increase awareness of national, regional, local and specific hospital data measuring DCD performance.
  • Describe successful processes for potential donor identification, timely OPO notification, and DCD donor management.
  • Identify the importance of collaborative donation conversations.
  • Discuss withdrawal of life-sustaining measures in alternative settings to the intensive care setting.
  • Outline operating room recovery processes.
  • Describe model practices, such as interdisciplinary donation councils and donor case reviews, to increase collaboration between OPOs, transplant centers, and hospitals.
  • Provide additional resources for implementing effective DCD donation processes.
