JOURNEY OF A DONATED ORGAN

Dr Hannah McGivern (Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences) received funding to produce a video which will use a combination of interviews with clinicians and researchers and a short animation to illustrate the journey of a donated organ and explain how donations of organs and organ tissue can have a significant impact on the advancement of transplant medicine, help inform clinical practice and save more lives. The video will raise awareness of the importance of organ donation and will be a useful development tool for front-line specialist nurses in organ donation.
