Potential Donor Audit Development Study
In May, 2022, the HSE Organ Donation and Transplant Ireland commissioned NOCA to develop a Potential Donor Audit (PDA). The Potential Donor Audit Development Study is a clinically led audit development project which will establish and test a PDA and make recommendations for implementation.
As the parent of /an organ donor I feel it is most important that potential donors always be identified, and their families given the opportunity of considering organ donation by being spoken to by an appropriately trained organ donation specialist.Although I was very aware of organ donation, at a time of such overwhelming anguish when our son was on life support, if we had not been approached and asked about donating our son’s organs, quite possibly we would not have thought of it. How disappointing and devastating that would be knowing the comfort organ donation gives, and the ongoing benefit, to a donor family'
