Communication and collaboration are key when working with recovery partners on a shared case. During this webinar, speakers identify the challenges and opportunities that arise on shared tissue and eye cases in regards to individual needs of each tissue and organization and how to effectively communicate with each other to ensure the best possible outcome of the donation for both organizations. This session focuses on the tissue and eye bank requirements in blood collection, recovery procedures, physical inspections and cooling protocols. The speakers also present various case studies that highlight the importance of communication on shared cases.
