PUB-017: Organ Sharing

Organ Sharing: The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) supports:

  • The concept of regional organ sharing.
  • Patient status categories that have been equitably developed and ethically applied that give first preference to Wisconsin residents, where reasonably possible, and then share organs outside of the state.
  • Efforts to continue public and physician education about organ donation and transplantation. (HOD, 0412)
