This webinar will highlight the partnership between two organ procurement organizations and their hospital association to create excitement, action and a culture aimed at increasing organ and tissue donation in the state. As the leading advocate for improving the health and well-being of Pennsylvania’s residents, The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) works tirelessly with Gift of Life Donor Program and the Center for Organ Recovery and Education to develop inspirational programming for increasing donor designations and for driving education about the optimal donation process in the hospitals.

Target Audience:  

Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Explain how the missions of the state hospital association, the organ procurement organization (OPO) and the acute care hospital intersect.
  • Describe an example of a collaborative state hospital association-OPO partnership resulting in successful programming in support of the organ and tissue donation process.
