“The Organ Donor Process” will serve as a resource and a guide for thinking critically about the issues that arise when one contemplates the donation of organs for the benefit of others."

Worldwide, the organ donor process is becoming more and more significant as it becomes a critical source for linked global information and educational criteria that indentify the admission of life sustaining support. However, author Jared E. Edison noticed that there is a considerable lack of popular awareness on the realities surrounding the organ donor process. To address this gap, Edison rolls his sleeves and puts together a timely inquiry that explores and analyzes the personal and social influences of organ donations and transplantations upon donors, recipients, family members, health practitioners and medical researchers.

"The Organ Donor Process" (published by iUniverse) is an educational tool offering a wealth of recent information on organ transplant, implant and donation. In this book, Edison summarizes the contours of the topic, reviews the pertinent questions for research, states his methods for gathering data, reviews the pertinent literature, and outlines his findings and conclusions. Finally, he proposes recommendations to guide developments in the field. Several appendices provide additional support for study of the topic, an annotated bibliography offers summaries and critiques of pertinent works, and a section of recommended resources suggests options for further reading.

The influences on individuals and organizations of the research, practices, policies, regulations and societal norms related to organ donations raise significant issues for many, both for personal and for societal reasons. "If you count yourself as part of this group," Edison points out, "then “The Organ Donor Process” will serve as a resource and a guide for thinking critically about the issues that arise when one contemplates the donation of organs for the benefit of others."
