Donation 101: The Hospital’s Role (UPH)

Donation 101: The Hospital’s Role (UPH)

This online learn­ing mod­ule is intend­ed only for health­care pro­fes­sion­als employed by the UPH sys­tem in Iowa.

The oppor­tu­ni­ty to donate one’s organs, tis­sues, and eyes is an impor­tant and endur­ing deci­sion for any­one. Health­care pro­fes­sion­als are an inte­gral part of the dona­tion process. The pur­pose of this course is to pro­vide a gen­er­al overview of the health­care pro­fes­sion­al’s role in the dona­tion process:

  • Describe the hos­pi­tal’s role and respon­si­bil­i­ty in the dona­tion process
  • Iden­ti­fy how and when to noti­fy Iowa Donor Network
  • Sum­ma­rize the impor­tance of using dis­cre­tion and sen­si­tiv­i­ty with poten­tial donor families
  • State the role of IDN in the con­sent process
  • Iden­ti­fy organs and tis­sues for dona­tion and transplantation

Our Vision:

All are inspired to donate life.
