Journey of a Donated Organ
Project Lead: Dr Hannah McGivern
The Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD) initiative is responsible for coordinating a nationwide effort to collect, process and archive samples of human tissue and whole organs to support and advance research into transplantation, with the aim of improving outcomes for transplant patients. This video 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.
