Organ and tissue donations: the current situation in Quebec
Quebec has all the required elements to become a world leader in organ and tissue donation but is unaware of half of its potential. This presentation will reveal the true potential donors have and where Quebec is positioned in comparison to the rest of the world. What are the constraints that prevent tissue and organ donation from happening? Who can donate their organs and how do you proceed? How do you approach a family to give them the option of donating organs and tissue? Lastly, families of donors have certain needs that are not perceived. How does Dr. Marsolais’ Mission plan to support donors?
Throughout the course of this presentation, participants will learn about the following:
- Who can donate organs and tissues;
- What can be transplanted and how many people will be able to benefit;
- How to proceed with organs and tissue donations;
- How the family will be supported during and after the process of organ and tissue donation.
A question period will follow the presentation.
