Nowadays, the demand for tissue transplantation has significantly increased. To optimize donor recruitment, the potential availability of tissue donors has to be evaluated. In 2011 we conducted a cohort study in three Dutch hospitals in the Netherlands. The potential amount of eligible tissue donors found, based on medical records in these hospitals is compared to the physician's donation form report. In total 1,342 patient records were analysed. From these records, the donation officers considered 484 patients as a potential tissue donor (36.1 %). Despite the absence of contra-indication, the physician did not recognise 25 % (n = 123/484) of potential tissue donors. Physicians' lack of sufficient knowledge of tissue donation was the main cause of adequately identifying tissue donors. A higher percentage of tissue donors in these Dutch hospitals should be feasible through creating awareness and education regarding tissue donation. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

In hospitals, physicians are rarely confronted with tissue donation. Besides correctly identifying an eligible tissue donor, the physician also must deal with the bereaved family. When the immediate family members were asked to consent for tissue donation, objection by the next of kin appears to be the main reason for the loss of potential tissue donors, if no registration is found in the donor register. Therefore, physicians guidance of next of kin through the consent process for tissue donation is an essential part of the recruitment process and requires adequate communication about donation skills and techniques. We analyzed if physicians educated with a video-based E-learning program on communication about donation skills successfully contributes to a higher consent rate for tissue donation.This retrospective study was conducted in 2014 in a Dutch teaching hospital. Two groups of physicians were compared; physicians receiving a lecture on tissue donation and physicians receiving additional E-learning on communication about donation. The results were analyzed on the outcome obtained consent for tissue donation from next of kin.Analyses show that physicians receiving a lecture about organ and tissue donation extended with video-based E-learning on communication about donation obtain a significantly (P .011) higher consent rate (55.6%) for tissue donation compared with physicians who only receive a lecture (15.5%).A mandatory offer for physicians to follow E-learning on communication about donation must be considered. This could help the availability of tissue donors.
