My name is Angelique Tadeo. I have been an Organ Recovery Coordinator for Donor Network of Arizona for the past 7 years after working as a Trauma ICU nurse for 25 years. I am an ORC IV Team Lead which means that I not only have the opportunity to work directly with donors and donor families but I am a primary preceptor and Advisor on Call. I especially like to work with staff new to donation. After you have been in the field for a few years it is easy to forgot how very different donor management is compared to ICU nursing and I enjoy working closely with new coordinators and seeing them succeed.
Typical crisis planning focuses on potential challenges or events that could impact the day-t0-day operations of an organization but what about unique, uncommon circumstances that impact donor management or patient care? From pregnant donors to donor-derived infections, this webinar will explore strategies that OPO professionals should consider when faced with unique challenges that occasionally arise during the donor management process.
