[Organ donation in Germany under the new legislation].
Urologe A 2020; 59(1):17-20U

Abstract

The political debate concerning organ donations reached increased public awareness from 2012, despite the multiple scandals around organ allocation. The process of organ donation has been restructured since financing improved by the GZSO (Gesetz für bessere Zusammenarbeit und bessere Strukturen bei der Organspende). The focus should be reduction of deficits in donor identification and notification within hospitals. Hence, it is time to introduce an "opt-out" solution, a system already standard in other European countries. Finally, to increase in the much-needed organ donations within Germany a multistructured concept should be established: improving hospital pathways, staff recognition, public awareness and political support.
