What quality tools have been developed on safety of deceased organ donation processes for both types of organ donors from donation after cardiocirculatory death (DCD) and neurological determination of death (NDD) worldwide?
In this scoping review, we will consider studies that include deceased organ donors, both DCD and NDD, in any country. Terms to describe deceased organ donors vary worldwide, so we are considering the following terms valid: organ donation, tissue and organ procurement, organ donation process, donation after circulatory death, organ donation after circulatory determination of death, non-heart beating donation, organ donation after neurological determination of death, brain death donor, donation after neurologic death, organ retrieval, organ procurement, dead donor rule, tissue and organ harvesting, organ donor, tissue donor, donor, body donation, donation/procurement of organ/tissues, cardiocirculatory death, cardiac death, DCD or NDD. For the purposes of this review “any country” refers to countries that are considered low, middle, and high resource/income.
In this scoping review, we will consider studies, reports or documents that investigated the use of tools that propose solutions and/or strategies to help optimizing organ donation and/or promote patient safety in organ donation processes worldwide. Terms to describe quality tools vary worldwide, so we are considering the following terms valid: safety, checklist, quality improvement, safety culture, improvement tools, quality improvement toolkit, diagram, flowchart, histogram, pareto chart, PDSA worksheet, run chart, control chart, scatter diagram, total quality management, practice https://d.docs.live.net/86a839430c9e7553/Amina/A CHEO/CDTRP/Review/JBI_TitleRegistrationForm_CDTRP_July5.docx guidelines, organ donation quality, process improvement, high quality practices, quality tools, quality monitoring tools, safe procurement, and computerized note template.
In this scoping review, we will consider as context the hospitals source of organ donors, organ donation/procurement organizations, clinics and other healthcare setting involved in organ donation processes in any country.
