Who Represents Suitable Living Donors? Who Does Not?
12:30 to 1:15 pm
What do you tell an 18-year-old who wants to donate a kidney to her father? How young is too young? Is autonomy the principle that trumps all others? Are there objective criteria for choosing potential living donors? And what difference, if any, should one’s culture make in making donation decisions?

Honoring First Person Consent in the Face Of Family Objections
1:30 to 2:15 pm
Today, with many state donor registries, it is more common for a donor designation decision to be made prior to death. Most agree this is an ideal way to obtain consent, preferable to deferring to a surrogate’s decision after a death. But, what should be done when a donor has given consent, and an immediate relative contests the consent? How do hospitals and procurement organizations support the grieving family while simultaneously adhering to a binding end-of-life wish to which the family objects? And how can hospitals and procurement organizations work together to minimize risk when first-person consents are contested?
Sue Kontak, RN, MS, CPTC, Clinical Manager, New York Organ Donor Network

Is It Appropriate for Technology to Facilitate Organ Procurement?
2:15 to 3:00 pm
With our country’s diverse and newly immigrated populations, there is frequently a need to discuss organ
donation issues with family members who are abroad. But do phone and video allow for effective communication
between the healthcare provider and grieving families? What are the risks associated with the utilization of video chat platforms for hospitals and procurement organizations? Are there advantages to employing video chats more frequently, to allow family members to take part in medical decisions without being present in the hospital?
Natalie R. Benavides, Director, Hospital Services, New York Organ Donor Network
