Donor Management Snags: Overcoming Unique Challenges in the Donation Process

Tuesday, April 06, 2021, at 2:00pm

Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) and their respective recovery teams play a critical role in the evaluation, management, and organ allocation of a potential donor. Bearing in mind that all OPOs are unique given their varied resources and demographics, what trials or obstacles might they each face to bring it all to fruition? With only one kidney program in its DSA, Nevada Donor Network has its own set of challenges as it relates to kidney exports, whereas Gift of Life Michigan faces challenges related to local transplants given the number of programs within its state. Join us to hear from both OPOs as they describe challenges they’ve encountered and how they’ve overcome those obstacles to maximize each donor outcome.
