About the Authors
  • Organ shortage is an ongoing problem in many countries. The needless death and suffering which have resulted necessitate an investigation into potential solutions. This examination of contemporary ethical means, both practical and policy-oriented, of reducing the shortfall in organs draws on the experiences of a range of countries. The authors focus on the resolution and negotiation of ethical conflict, examine systems approaches such as the 'Spanish model' and the US Breakthrough Collaboratives, evaluate policy proposals relating to incentives, presumed consent, and modifications regarding end-of-life care, and evaluate the greatly increased use of (non-heart-beating) donors suffering circulatory death, as well as living donors. The proposed strategies and solutions are not only capable of resolving the UK's own organ-shortage crisis, but also of being implemented in other countries grappling with how to address the growing gap between supply and demand for organs.

    • Proposes innovative and creative ways of dealing with organ shortage which are both ethically-principled and pragmatic
    • Examines the issue of organ shortage in a number of different countries as well as the strategies that have been implemented to address the problem
    • Seeks to combine a range of perspectives to dealing with organ shortage, including bioethics, sociology, law and medicine

    Reviews & endorsements

    Overall, the book gives a solid introduction to the broad issue of organ shortage and may be inspiring to researchers, policymakers, and ethicists alike. The numerous authors introduce a variety of viewpoints on highly relevant debates, without dwelling excessively on a singular facet of organ donation or a specific organ. Indeed, in order to find a solution to the shortage, policies in the UK and elsewhere will need to be similarly balanced."

    - Maggie Woodward, World Medical and Health Policy
