The Donor Program Development team at Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) collaborates with hospital, funeral home, hospice and other health care professionals in order to maximize the potential for Arizonans to save and heal lives. Partnership is critical in our work to support donor families and honor the donation decisions of their loved ones.
Donor Program Development maintains successful donation programs by providing education and orientation on procedure and best practices to administrators, physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, funeral directors, embalmers and other professionals across the state. We provide Designated Tissue Requestor workshops, which are classes that show health care professionals how to speak with and care for families who are faced with the decision about donation on their loved one’s behalf. We also conduct medical records reviews for quality assurance purposes.
By promoting best practices, providing high-level customer service and implementing professional education, DNA is able to help Arizona hospitals realize their essential role in the life-saving and life-healing donation process.
