New Evidence Update on organ donation from NICE

We are pleased to inform you an Evidence Update on ‘organ donation’ has been published.

NICE Evidence Updates help to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence, and keep health and social care professionals up-to-date with new research. While Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance and do not provide formal recommendations, they do highlight new evidence that health and social care professionals may wish to consider alongside current guidance.

The new Evidence Update focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guideline Clinical Guideline 135 ‘Organ donation for transplantation: improving donor identification and consent rates for deceased organ donation’ (2011).

An Evidence Update Advisory Group, comprised of topic experts, reviewed the prioritised evidence and provided a commentary.

Your help in disseminating the Evidence Update to your colleagues would be much appreciated.

We would also welcome your feedback on the Evidence Update, what you like about it and how you think it could be improved. You can send your comments through to contactus@evidence.nhs.uk.
