BMC Medical Ethics is calling for submissions to our Collection on perspectives and attitudes towards organ donation. Organ donation - the process of donating healthy organs from a living or deceased person to someone in need of a transplant - is a crucial aspect of medicine. However, in spite of the benefits it brings to patients and grieving families, the process of organ donation is surrounded by significant ethical concerns about consent and coercion, religious, and cultural issues. BMC Medical Ethics is launching this collection to promote a better understanding of the factors that contribute to individuals’ decisions, perspectives and attitudes towards organ donation, among diverse populations.
