Understanding Decision Making in Organ Donation: A National Study

Principal Investigator(s):

Michaël Chassé, Justin Presseau, Kimberly Jordison

Status: Enrolling

This study is part of Improving Neurological Death Dx: The INDex Research Program.

We will conduct semi-structured interviews with SDMs. Our sampling frame will balance interviews with those that were approached or not for organ donation, and consented or not to organ donation. Interviews will be informed by two complementary theoretical frameworks.
