Legacy of Life

Organ and tissue donation are a vital part of high-quality end-of-life care and all health care professionals have an integral role in this process.

Management of the Waiting List and Allocation Criteria

Each patient is evaluated in terms of his/her medical condition and need. The organ allocation and recipient work up process is very complex and completed by specialized teams of physicians, nurses and multidisciplinary staff.

In Nova Scotia, the Multi Organ Transplant Program (MOTP) provides transplant services for all of Atlantic Canada. For more information, please visit the Multi Organ Transplant website at www.motpatlantic.ca.
