Body of abstract;
The role of the organ donor coordinator at DonateLife Victoria (DLV) is a critical component of the organ donation process. The involvement of experienced and efficient organ donor coordinator (ODC) is integral to successful organ and tissue donation outcomes.
I have been in this privileged role since July 2007 and believe that the role of the ODC will continue to expand and become even more complex. My role over this time has progressed from a case related focus to also leading portfolios that align with the national priorities.
During these last 6 years, and more recently, the challenge I find is to maintain my focus on ensuring organ and tissue cases progress in a timely, effective and professional manner, while also expanding my skills to ensure I remain a valuable team member.
My aim with this abstract is to highlight methods and strategies that I have found beneficial to ensure my position as an ODC remains satisfying, from a professional and personal viewpoint while I continue to evolve in an advanced practice nursing role.
These strategies include;
These strategies are completely subjective in nature, however I believe that they may have some relevance for other ODC’s to assist in their own personal development. This can only lead to a more experienced and competent ODC workforce.
