|Donor Advocacy with Special Reference to Belgium|
|SQUIFFLET, Jean-Paul [Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Liège - CHU > > Chirurgie abdominale- endocrinienne et de transplantation >]|
|[en] Before any published Belgian law, EU Directive, and/or EU Action Plan, the donor
<br />advocate was naturally a member of the transplantation team performing living kidney
<br />donation. The need of donor advocacy appeared obvious with liver living donation, which
<br />was and is still a risky procedure. Today, it is clear that the donor advocacy must not be
<br />limited to living donation but extended to brain-dead and cardiac-dead donation.
<br />Nevertheless, its complexity will need experienced persons in the field of organ donation
<br />as well as transplantation, while remembering that patients’ first right is the right to donate.
