The Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) works with states and territories, clinicians and the community sector to deliver the Australian Government’s national reform programme to improve organ and tissue donation and transplantation outcomes in Australia.
When a patient meets the criteria for organ donation a process unfolds that involves the families and friends of the patient, the medical teams, nursing staff, the social workers and organ donor coordinators.
Information and how to donate
The DonateLife website has information that outlines the criteria for organ donation.
Education and awareness
DonateLife in Central Queensland provides staff education and raises community awareness.
Any member of the public, community group, schools or workplaces can request a donation specialist to come and inform their members of the importance of organ and tissue donation by calling (07) 4920 6728.
We can provide presentations that raise awareness and are tailored to the audience, timeframe and platform.
