Here is What You'll Learn
Organ and tissue donation provides hope for thousands of people with organ failure or tissue diseases and injuries. Improved surgical techniques and new anti-rejection drugs permit the successful transplantation of organs and tissues. In addition to the benefits that the transplant recipient receives, the donor family is presented with opportunities that may help them cope with the loss of someone special. One of the benefits for families whose loved one is able to donate organs and tissues includes knowing that their loved one’s gift has provided an extension or improvement of the quality of life for another person. One organ donor can potentially help up to eight people. Recipients often return to healthy, active lifestyles after organ transplantation. For instance, kidney recipients live free of dialysis; pancreas recipients are cured of diabetes; heart, lung and liver recipients are able to return to work; and small intestine recipients are cured of digestive disorders. This presentation will provide an overview of the organ procurement process, types of organ donation, types of providers, cultural examples and vocabulary.

2. Interpreters will gain an understanding of the ethical implications behind ‘dying the right way’ under medical terms and how to define death.
