Who identifies the donors?
The transplant team does not make first contact with the donor. The donor must initiate the process and contact the team. The transplant coordinator will get general information from the interested donor and help with booking the next appointment for a more detailed consultation. The coordinator will guide the donor through the process and provide information and education.
The transplant team cannot and will not disclose any information to family members or the recipient about the donor's test results or status. This information is STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. It is up to the donor whether they want to disclose any of the information they receive from their testing.
