Living Donor Coordinator 

The living donor coordinator oversees the coordination of care for living donors, starting at the initial intake, through the evaluation process, surgery, and follow-up care. The living donor coordinator supports the transplant team by educating prospective donors about the living donation process.

Coordinators also help care for donors throughout the donation process.

Living Donor Advocate

The independent living donor advocate's (ILDA) primary focus is to help potential living donors understand the non-medical problems, challenges, and changes that donation brings. Independent living donor advocates also evalute the donor's emotional support, social support, and financial resources.

The donor advocate is employed specifically to represent and advise the donor, protect and promote the donor's interests, and ensure that the donor's decision is informed and free from coercion. The donor advocate provides counseling and emotional support to donors and families as they proceed through the donation process.
