Event description

Description

June CPD Seminar

The number of donated organs is not keeping pace with the number of patients needing a transplant. As a result, strategies to increase donation rates are being developed and considered in Australia and around the world. In particular, questions arise whether families should be prevented from overriding an individual’s consent, whether our consent framework be changed to an “opt out” or “presumed consent” system, and whether we should reconsider current legal limits on incentivizing donation. This presentation will explore these questions in light of existing law, policy, and evidence, and whether there is a need for legal change in Australia.
