Strategies to increase cadaveric donor numbers

  1. Increase prospective donor pool

    • expand ICU provision

    • elective ventilation

    • adjust criteria for brainstem death

    • promote NHBOD within all clinical areas

  2. Increase recruitment from the donor pool

    • mandated request

    • presumed consent

    • appointment of more transplant coordinators

  3. Increase utilisation of those consented

    • retrieval from the “marginal” donor
