The aim of the Potential Donor Audit (PDA) 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.

PDA Objectives

  • Quantify the potential for organ donation in acute Irish hospitals

  • Assess if the PDA identifies 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
