Clinical Guidelines for Organ Transplantation from Deceased Donors
TSANZ is the body responsible for developing eligibility criteria for organ transplantation and protocols for the allocation of deceased donor organs to wait-listed patients. Specifically, TSANZ is funded by the Australian Government’s Organ and Tissue Authority to maintain:
Current, nationally uniform eligibility criteria to ensure that there are equitable and transparent criteria by which patients are listed for organ transplantation, and
Current, nationally uniform allocation protocols to ensure consistency in the criteria by which donated organs are allocated.
The TSANZ document Organ Transplantation from Deceased Donors: Consensus Statement on Eligibility Criteria and Allocation Protocols was released in version 1.1 in June 2011. The current document replaces the previous Consensus Statement and was developed by the TSANZ Advisory Committees with written feedback sought through a targeted consultation process.
Version 1.0 of the Clinical Guidelines was released in April 2016. The current document, Version 1.9, updates and replaces all prior versions of the Clinical Guidelines.
