During this session, we will cover the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act and the AATB Standards on Authorization and Notification of First Person gifts. We will present the legal and ethical basis for our practice in facilitating the gift, especially issues such as determining who is reasonably available to make the gift, the elements which must be communicated to authorizing parties, the documentation of waiver or unavailability, the verification of the donor, and other topics pertinent to documenting donation. This session will include real-life scenarios and a dialogue with the audience on their areas of concern.
