As we all know, death and taxes are two certainties in life. When your death occurs, your family and loved ones won’t have to make a decision at such a difficult time about donation of your organs and/or tissue if you communicate those wishes to them now.
Be aware that there are a number of questions that must be answered in order for a donation to proceed. A document called the Uniform Donor Risk Assessment Interview, or DRAI, must be completed. In order to help your loved ones with these sometimes difficult questions, you may want to fill out the form in advance. Some of the questions are time-sensitive, so the answers may have changed by the time of your death, but you can at least help with many of the answers. Your family can then fill out the paperwork with the procurement coordinator without having to struggle with most of the answers.
If you click on this link, you will be taken to a page on the American Association of Tissue Banks website, and you can download and fill out the Uniform Donor Risk Assessment Interview form for donors over 12 years of age.
