Designed to help caregivers meet the unique needs of donor families, this resource contains both practical and personal information for everyone involved with the donation experience. Topics such as helping families come to terms with brain death, facilitating the donation discussion, opening communication, and providing support in the months and years following the death are explained in detail. In addition to technical details involving consent, the donor families’ spiritual needs are also explored, such as integrating personal rituals and honoring the family's final moments with their loved one.
