The Next Big Thing In Organ Donation

Very pleased to have published an article in Croakey today about First Person Consent.  Thanks to Melissa Sweet and Marie McInerney for accepting this article for publication.

As previously foreshadowed, this is really one of the next major initiatives that needs to be pursued so as to ensure that decisions about organ donation are respected, honoured and, importantly, upheld.

This is not an opt-out system.  Rather, it is a system that allows families to endorse their loved one’s decision about organ donation.  And it uses our very important call to action, the Australian Organ Donation Register.
