Donors Matter Interactive Donation Education prepares learners for properly handling organ and tissue donation opportunities in the clinical setting. Unit 1 introduces learners to the local and national organizations responsible for carrying out policies and procedures related to organ donation. It also introduces learners to two concepts important to the clinical practice prescribed in the course: “process breakdowns” and the “huddle.” Unit 2 describes the process through which patients meeting imminent death criteria are reported to CORE and emphasizes the importance of doing so in a timely and correct way, in accordance with federal mandate. Unit 3 instructs hospital staff on how to handle a potential donor case once the referral has been made. This includes talking with patient families about donation, understanding donor designation status, and types of donor authorization. Unit 4 describes appropriate measures for care of the donor, as well as the process of organ and tissue allocation.
