Bioethic’s Youngner discussed possible changes in organ donation

Proposed changes in organ donation stir debate

NPR: Stuart Youngner, chair of the bioethics department and the Susan E. Watson Professor of Bioethics, discussed the recent consideration for new guidelines for organ donation after cardiac death. “You must keep the people who are taking care of and making decisions about the potential donor separate from those who are trying to get an organ to put it into the recipient,” Youngner said.
