Potential donor audit development project report: summary report
Organ donation saves lives and improves the quality of life for people with end-stage organ failure. It involves the selflessness and compassion of organ donors and their families, supported by dedicated frontline organ donation staff and HSE Organ Donation Transplant Ireland (ODTI).
Evidence from other countries leading in organ donation shows that a continuous Potential Donor Audit (PDA) is an essential part of an Organ Donation and Transplant Service and leads to improvement (NOCA, 2022). HSE ODTI asked the National Office of Clinical Audit (NOCA) to develop a PDA for Irish Hospitals.
The aim of the PDA is to ensure that every person who is approaching the end of life in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency Department is offered the possibility of becoming an organ donor, where this is appropriate.
