IPDA Aim & Objectives

The aim of the Irish Potential Donor Audit (IPDA) is to ensure that every person who is approaching the end of life in ICU and ED is offered the possibility of becoming an organ donor, where this is appropriate.

IPDA Objectives

The Quality Improvement objectives of the IPDA are: 

  • Quantify the potential for organ donation in acute Irish hospitals  

  • Identify opportunities for improvement in organ donation and where in the patient journey these opportunities occur  

  • Identify reasons for non-donation outcome  

  • Systematically assess the degree to which best practice standards in organ donation are met.
