Tissue donation in general will be one of the highlights of the upcoming ISODP conference in Seoul. Donation of tissues is an important part of the donation process all over the world, yet demand of tissues is not completely met anywhere. As the Chairman of the OPO in Philadelphia, Howard Nathan is a leading expert in the field and has increased tissue donation in his area tremendously. His lecture will give you all the information on how to improve tissue donation. Still, there is an ongoing debate about aspects of safety in tissue donation, quality of tissue banking and traceability, all of which will be discussed by three experts who will contribute to the debate and give a state-of-the-art overview of this field.

Donation after circulatory death is increasing by numbers in most countries around the world. There are a lot of experts saying that donation after circulatory death is the only way in the long run to definitely overcome the problem of scarcity of organs. For the next of kin, it seems to be much easier to understand death of a person when there is a circulatory death rather than brain death. With more experience in the field, results are quite comparable with transplantation after DBD. However there are a number of organizational aspects of DCD which need to be addressed at the hospital level, such as protocols, stand procedures, etc. Three experts in this area will outline how they do it in their respective countries: USA, Spain and UK.

These interactive sessions will take place on Saturday, October 17 from 9:00-12:30, which will serve as introductions into some essential elements of donation.
