Capacity and organ donation – the complexities and the potential for discrimination: in conversation with Bonnie Venter

In this ‘in conversation with,’ I talk to Bonnie Venter about her work investigating the complexities of living organ donation in England & Wales, and think about the issues caused where either the proposed donor or the potential recipient has impaired decision-making capacity.

The paper Bonnie and I discuss, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, and prompted by the case of William Verden, can be found here (it is behind a paywall but if you ask nicely I am sure we can help).

The paper that we talk about led on by Rebecca Thom looking at inequitable access to transplants for adults with impaired decision-making capacity, which appeared in Transplant International in March 2022, can be found here.
