The National Guideline has been developed by the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) and the DonateLife Network. The National Guideline provides guidance in relation to the Practice of Donation after Circulatory Determination of Death (DCDD) in Australia.
It promotes a consistent, medically appropriate and highly ethical practice of DCDD in Australia that optimises donation and transplantation outcomes. This National Guideline supersedes the 2010 'National protocol for donation after cardiac death'.
