Book Synopsis
Providing families with the legacy of organ donation in their worst
moments is often the most precious reward for this emotionally and
intellectually draining position. The coordinator is compassionate,
caring, and willing to comfort a family consumed with grief. The
coordinator believes that donation provides healing and hope for
grieving families and that their ultimate goal is to share life where one
has been so sadly lost.
Organ procurement coordinators are responsible for bridging organs
from donor to recipient. To accomplish this, one needs a broad set of
skills—including hospital development, public education, requesting
consent, death declaration issues, donor management, organ sharing,
recovery, and packaging and labeling requirements. The Coordinator
should be excellent at multitasking, organizing, and communicating,
and he or she shouldn’t mind a day full of surprises. The best organ
procurement coordinators juggle these tasks with a polite smile.
The purpose of this guide is to provide the organ procurement coordinator
with the information needed to pass the Certified Procurement
Transplant Coordinator (CPTC) exam as well as a handbook for the
Coordinator to enhance his or her knowledge in the transplant field.
The guide explores the required skill sets using UNOS policies, current
research, and experiential knowledge.
