Full Event Details:

Organ transplantation saves and improves thousands of lives in the UK each year, but there are still not enough organs to give a transplant to every person who needs one. This raises many difficult questions: Should we worry about consent for organ donation? Should we use lower quality organs if this means more people can receive transplants? How should we choose which patients to give transplants to? Should we give transplants to people who have caused their own illness? This session will explore these issues and will highlight the ethical issues that transplantation presents.
