Description

This article explores ways in which paediatricians can help increase awareness and embed organ and tissue donation in the end-of-life care process. This can save patient lives on the organ transplant waiting list, many of whom currently die prematurely. The information benefits multidisciplinary staff including doctors, nurses and allied professionals to (1) recognise triggers for making referral to the specialist nurse for organ donation in order to make timely assessment for suitability for organ and/or tissue donation, (2) plan a multidisciplinary approach for families to make decisions for the gift of life and (3) help provide on-going support to families and staff.
