A Resource Guide
The Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration and Health Care Financing Administration have created a publication titled “Roles and Training in the Donation Process: A Resource Guide.” Developed with guidance from donor families and a multi-disciplinary team of transplant and other healthcare professionals, this guide offers support to hospitals in implementing the training provisions of current legislation. The current legislation, which took effect on August 21, 1998, was a revision of the Medicare and Medicaid Hospital Conditions of Participation designed to facilitate an increase in organ, tissue and eye donation.
