Ethical Considerations in Organ Transplants: A Conversation

Ethical Considerations in Organ Transplants: A Conversation

Ethical Considerations in Organ Transplants: A Conversation

According to Health Resources & Human Services (HRSA), there are approximately 106,000 people in the United States awaiting an organ donation. Of these 106,000, 17 die each day. The most common transplants are kidney, liver, heart, and lung- organs one can’t live without. Many hospitals have multiple patients waiting on a donation of the same organ, and the hospital decides who is to receive an organ when it becomes available. How is this decision made? Join us for a facilitated conversation that will discuss how transplant decisions are identified and made, and how these decisions are shared with patients, families, and communities, ensuring organ donation is done in the most ethical way possible.
