37: The Gift of Life: An Intersection of Grief and Gratitude

Each year, thousands of lives are saved and improved through organ and tissue donation. But despite the remarkable advances in organ recovery, more than 100,000 Americans are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant with 33 dying every day for lack of an organ. This episode spotlights two nurse CEO’s innovating at the system level to maximize organ availability. Ginny McBride, RN, MPH, Executive Director of OurLegacy Organ & Tissue Donor Services at Advent Health in Orlando, Florida, and Patti Niles, RN, BSN, CPTC, CEO of Southwest Transport Alliance in Dallas, Texas, are two nurse innovators from organ procurement organizations (OPOs) working to modernize and streamline organ donor management systems across the nation. Working closely with patients, families, and care teams provides them an understanding of the complexities of organ donation and transplantation enabling them to see the big picture and take action where innovations in health information exchange, donor management, and procurement can have an impact on a national scale. Tune in to hear about the groundbreaking work these nurses are leading so more people are able to give and receive the gift of a lifetime.
