Effect of language and country of birth on the consent process and medical suitability of potential organ donors; a linked-data cohort study 2010–2015

This paper showed Donation referrals were equally suitable whether from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background or not. We found families of CALD referrals were much less likely to give donation consent than other families. We also found that consent was requested less often from families of people born overseas and non-English speaking. Donation rates could increase by 10% if consent differences were removed.
