Kidney Independent Living Donor Advocacy Training Documentation Manual

NATCO has developed a manual for the Kidney Independent Living Donor Advocate; the goal of the manual is to provide the tools necessary to help the Independent Living Donor Advocate/Independent Living Donor Advocate Team work with the potential donor and be certain that all necessary information has been imparted to the potential donor. NATCO recognizes that at each transplant center many different individuals may fulfill this role. In preparing this manual, NATCO solicited input from many social workers, physicians, nurses and clergy who currently work as donor advocates in their institutions. While there are too many to name individually, we want to assure the reader that all points of view were considered.
