From Referral to Recovery and Beyond: Understanding the Donation Process

As you all know, CORE coordinates the recovery of organs, tissues and corneas for transplant. What does that mean exactly?

In response to many of you who’ve asked for additional education, CORE is offering an hour-long seminar to CORE volunteers and task force members that will improve your understanding of the donation process.

Specifically we will discuss the evaluation of a potential donor, how organs are placed, the surgical recovery process and the types of follow-up services that CORE provides including aftercare/grief counseling for our donor families and the procedure for contacting donor or recipient families.

Representatives from CORE’s Donor Referral Center, Recovery and Organ Procurement Departments and Donor Family Services, will use a real-life donor case to demonstrate the process, from start-to-finish, in a clear and interesting way. They will also be available to answer your specific questions.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 19 at 6:30pm. Dinner will be provided. To attend, please RSVP to Katelynn Metz at kmetz@core.org.
