  1. Describe the potential for conflict between end of life care and organ donation
  2. Identify the rationale for including organ donation in end of life care planning
  3. Describe the role of the organ procurement organization, the physician and nursing staff, and the patients family in addressing the twin concerns of end of life care and organ donation
