There are times that donor management can become more complicated and challenging than usual. These situations challenge the organ procurement coordinator and healthcare team to think outside of the box in order to facilitate the stewardship of the gift of donation. During this webinar, two unusual cases will be presented: The first scenario describes a case during hurricane Matthew when the organ procurement team was unable to safely reach the hospital; the second scenario explores cyanide poisoning and organ donation.

Target Audience:  

Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the webinar the participant will be able to:

  • Outline the logistical challenges involved in implementation of an OPO disaster plan.
  • Discuss the key differences in remote donor management during severe weather
  • Describe the importance of gaining and maintaining key hospital employees that assist in the donation process
  • Discuss the physiological impact of cyanide poisoning on organs
  • Describe considerations to be made and treatments needed to manage an organ donor with cyanide poisoning
