Partners Newsletter – Fall 2013
The first edition of Partners includes news about a collaborative project at five ICUs at Strong Memorial Hospital and Upstate University Hospital. The project is being undertaken to standardize the donation approach process with families of potential donors.
A MESSAGE FROM ROB KOCHIK
Executive Director, Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network (FLDRN)
Welcome to this first edition of “Partners,” an online newsletter designed especially for healthcare professionals to exchange information about organ donation including: best practices; in-depth analysis on specific areas of the donation process; a calendar of events showing upcoming professional conferences, webinars and special events; and personal stories about how donation impacted someone’s life.
Just as important as the content, so too is this newsletter’s name: “Partners.” We can’t think of a better way to emphasize the invaluable relationships FLDRN staff have with you, the healthcare professionals, who work at our hospital affiliates.
By working together, each and every day, we help meet the urgent need for patients awaiting an organ, cornea or tissue transplant and provide care and support to potential and actual donors and their families. Together, we save lives and bring comfort to families whose loved ones have given the Gift of Life.
