Transplant, Consent, Pre-Mortem Transplantation Optimizing Interventions, Canadian Practice, Legal Frameworks, Recommendations
The focus of this paper is on consent issues surrounding pre-mortem transplantation optimizing interventions. First, we explore the potential consequences of the different types of pre-mortem transplantation optimizing interventions that might be used, and we examine the current Canadian practice with respect to these interventions. We then analyze the status of consent to pre-mortem transplantation optimizing interventions under the current legal framework. Finally, we provide recommendations on how to improve the current legal framework.
