Tuesday, May 07, 2024, at 2:00pm

Several OPOs nationwide have adapted the DCD recovery process by transferring patients to a centralized center in an effort to improve the quality of care and maximize donation outcomes. During this session, we will welcome three OPOs, in varying stages of the centralized DCD process, to share their experiences from inception to the current state. They will walk us through the hurdles they have navigated and the strategies that implemented to optimize success.
