Wright comments, “A bereaved person, no matter his or her age, needs safe places, safe people and safe situations.” As a pastoral crisis caregiver, how would you offer these crucial elements to those in the midst of a death crisis? Grief is one of those things that whether the death is expected or unexpected the overall outcome is still the same. There is still loss grief and separation. So first and foremost as a caregiver we must begin with prayer and ask the Lord to guide us into the direction to help the care seeker. Because it does not matter if you are young or old when death comes knocking at your door you will go through some sort of grief.

It saves lives but, when looking at a wider picture we see not only donating. For example, selling and human trafficking is happening as well.

"The Case for Mandatory Organ Donation" - A Review (Reading Assignment, Week 7) In “The Case for Mandatory Organ Donation” (2007), by Scott Carney, he makes the argument that organ donation should not be a choice; instead Carney believes that organs should be donated regardless of the wishes of the deceased and their family. In this article Carney quotes Eric Johnson, a professor at Columbia University as saying, “…there would be a [an] increase of between 16 percent to 50 percent in the availability of organs, and others have speculated that this would eliminate the shortage of organs in some categories” (2007). The argument that Carney has put together is very effective and is quite persuasive to solving the problem of a lack of organs to those that need transplants. However there are holes in the argument that Carney has proposed. For example, although the opposition is stated briefly within the article, there is little attention given to the argument of spirituality and the beliefs that come along with some people’s thoughts on the afterlife and what happens to the human body after one passes away.
Deceased donors can provide the following organs: kidneys, pancreas, liver, lungs, heart, and intestines, which can be used to save the lives of as many as 8 people. Deceased donors also can provide tissues (such as bones, skin, heart valves and veins) and corneas. Living donors can provide a kidney or a portion of the liver, lung or intestine and, in some instances, eyes and tissues. However, the need of organ donor is much more than the number of people who actually donate. Some people argue that organ donation should be mandatory.
In reviewing the Aging with Dignity Website I learned more about what the Five Wishes are. Death and dying isn’t something that most people want to talk about, but it is very important to make your wishes known before it is too late. Five Wishes helps make this very achievable. For me, the answer to the questions are as follows 1- Who you want to make health care decisions for you when you can’t make them? I would like for my Husband Joseph to make those decisions for me, if he is unable and If my children are of adult age, then I would want my children, Chloe, Hannah, Natalie and Madelyn to make the decisions.
Each day quit a number of people waiting for organ transplant die because the demand for organs has largely exceeds the number of donors all over the world. According to the New York Times of April 16, 2009 and an online survey conducted 5,100 people by the advocacy group Donate Life America found that many people still harbor fears about organ donation and its process. Some of these fears are perpetuated by some dramatic television shows which make people misunderstand the procedures taken during organ donation process. Despite the awareness of the public of organ donation there is still shortage in organ donation. Apart from fear there are several factors that influence a persons’ decision to sign up for organ donation.
By greeting and offering seats to Sunita and her husband we were developing a rapport with the patient and being professionally friendly. It is important not to appear rushed, as this may interfere with the patient’s desire to disclose information. Sunita’s husband was asked to confirm Sunita’s date of birth and address to ensure that we had the right patient. A verbal consent was obtained before taking her history because informed consent should be gained from the patient before any healthcare intervention including history taking (NMC 2008). In Sunita’s case we had to rely on the information given to us by her husband to confirm that she was acting on her free will and also her body language when she nodded her head after being asked.
I will use a reflective model to describe any changes that I have encountered. In the UK, the system that is in place is the ‘opt in’ approach; this system is a more respectable approach to peoples wishes, individuals have to give their consent by signing the Organ Donation Register (ODR), this would allow their organs to be used for donation after death. However, there is a shortage of organ donors in the UK, making long waiting lists for people on the transplant list and many will die waiting. Some Politicians and the British Medical Association (BMA) would like to see the UK adopt the ‘opt out’ (presumed consent) approach. This would mean that every individual in the UK would be willing to donate their organs after death; this would be done by signing the ‘opt out’ register.
I think our society has a responsibility to take care of its members, and that responsibility extends to organ and tissue donation. In many ways, our bodies will be recycled by nature when we die, so we should donate our organs when we die because our body parts will eventually all end up returning to the earth in the long run. In my experience, the more information people receive about organ or tissue donation, the more likely they are to become donors when they die or during their lifetime. Therefore, the more transplant information provided to members of our society, the greater number of people who will decide to donate. We need more organizations like the Organ Transplant Awareness Program to help spread knowledge about transplants and donation.Though donation may seem like some small thing, the decision can save a person’s life.
