Exploring Organ
Donation
Through HEALTH EDUCATION
UNITS
If you were in an accident and your family members were
asked if they would consent to donate your organs, would
they know your wishes?
Alternatively, if it was a close family member, do you know
their wishes or feelings about the issue of organ donation?
They indicated that they wanted to be a donor on their
licence, but that was almost 10 years ago – have they
changed their mind?
Did you know that your family – not you – are the ones who
would make this final decision about your organs? Even
though you may have ticked the box on your licence, this is
an indication only, not a legal consent that doctors would
act on.
Encouraging people to talk about
their views on organ donation with
friends and family is a real focus for
Organ Donation New Zealand.
So with this in mind, they now have
fully resourced teaching units
available to teachers through their
website

WHO?… ORGAN DONATION NZ
Organ Donation New Zealand (ODNZ) is New Zealand’s official
donor agency, which has been based at Green Lane Hospital
since 1987. ODNZ:
• co-ordinates the donation of organs and tissues for transplant
units in New Zealand and sometimes Australia, and tissue
banks in New Zealand
• provides information and on-going support for families who
have generously donated organs or tissues
• works with health professionals to ensure that there are
nationally consistent and excellent processes for donation
• provides education and training for health professionals and
information to the public.

WHY?… THE RATIONALE
Organ donation is a topic that
• is directly relevant to college age Kiwi students
• lends itself to thought-provoking discussions
• concerns society at local, national, and
international levels.
The skills that students can learn through this
context can be transferred to many other
sensitive situations they may face.
