The overall goal of this grant program is to: 1) reduce the gap between the demand for organ transplants and the supply of organs from deceased donors by identifying successful strategies that can serve as model interventions to increase deceased organ donation and, 2) increase the knowledge of options available through living donation among patients who may need transplants and/or individuals considering serving as a living donor. Accordingly, this program will support sound applied research efforts to test the effectiveness of strategies that target any of the three program objectives listed below. The first two objectives pertain to deceased donation; the third relates to living donation. The specific objectives of this grant program are to increase, and improve understanding of how to increase: 1) individual commitment to be a deceased organ donor and documentation of that commitment; 2) consent of family (or others authorized to consent) for organ donation for a deceased relative; 3) the knowledge of the process, risks, advantages and disadvantages of deceased and living donation among patients who may need an organ and/or individuals considering serving as a living donor.
