The Transplantation Society Ethics Committee Survey

THE SURVEY WILL CLOSE ON OCTOBER 1

Survey is available in English, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish.

Dear Colleague,

The Transplantation Society Ethics Committee is undertaking a survey of professionals working in donation and transplantation regarding psychosocial evaluation of living organ donors. We are also collecting guidelines or policy documents concerning donor evaluation. The data collected will be used by the Committee to develop resources for transplant professionals working with living donors in a variety of sociocultural contexts.

To participate click here. The survey is anonymous, and should take about 12 minutes of your time. The survey will close on October 1st.

We would greatly appreciate your participation in this. Even if psychosocial evaluation of donors is not performed at your centre, your contribution to the study will be valuable.

Please click here to download a copy of the Plain Language Statement, which tells you more about the project and the researchers, and will help you make a decision about participation.

Even if you don’t wish to participate in the survey, we would be very grateful if you could email us a copy of any guidelines, protocols, policies or other documents about evaluation of living donors used at your centre or in your country.

Please also forward this information to any of your colleagues (within your centre, country, or region) who you think may be interested in participating.

Yours sincerely,
