NATCO Webinar Series


First Person Authorization Discards
— AKA Maximizing the Gifts


August 15, 2019 - 2:00 pm EST

Melissa Devenny, Executive Vice President, Donate Life America

Join us to hear about the importance of language and how perception and expectation can both help and hurt us in our work. Also learn what transplant centers are doing to promote organ, eye and tissue donation from incorporating the registration question into the patient listing process to broaden staff and community outreach. Gone are the days of seeing promoting donation as a conflict of interest. See examples of National Donate Life Registry campaign pages and innovative programs that are gaining transplant hospitals kudos for being part of the solution.
