The Donor’s Family

Every year, when someone is pronounced dead following death determination by neurologic criteria (DNC) or death determination by circulatory criteria (DCC), the family and loved ones of the deceased person considered a potential organ donor work with the treatment team to carry out his or her wishes.

Throughout the entire process leading up to the organ donation, the family is guided by the organ and tissue transplant liaison/resource nurse, as well as by Transplant Québec’s clinical coordinator/advisor. Personalized follow-up is also provided at the appropriate times thereafter.
