Goals

 NEVADA ORGAN & TISSUE DONOR TASK FORCE 

  

SHORT RANGE GOALS 

  • Continue to work with a contracted organization and the Nevada DMV to maintain the donor registry.
  • Continue our concerted effort to inform all health-related boards and commissions and other members of the health community.
  • Continue to acquire statistics from DMV (ex. age categories, location of people agreeing to be donors), organ procurement agencies (ex. number of donors per month) and UNOS (ex. number of transplant candidates waiting for organs in Las Vegas, Reno, etc.). These statistics will help the task force monitor our successes and weaknesses throughout the state.

LONG RANGE GOALS 

  • Commitment to enhance medical education throughout the state in regards to organ and tissue donation.
  • Work toward re-establishing heart and liver transplant centers in Nevada.
  • Improve Medicaid program/funding for transplant surgeries.
  • Establish priorities for future legislative action.
