Older donors could help reduce organ transplant gap: Canadian Report

Older donors could help reduce organ transplant gap: Canadian Report | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

Canada could reduce its persistent shortage of organs for transplant by retrieving more organs from older donors, says a study released Thursday by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. 

 

The variability seen in the rates of organ donation as well as the variation in the demographics of organ donors across the country has led to a closer examination of where the potential exists to increase the rates of organ donation.

 

The report highlights what can be viewed as the current missed opportunities to increase the rates of organ donation across Canada.

Deborah Verran's insight:

Variation between the provinces in Canada has led to this closer examination of data pertaining to organ donation. The recommendations are sound and the whole report is worth reading. This will be of interest to professionals who hold the responsibility and/or interest in the performance of health care systems pertaining to organ donation.
