Abstract

The RAPiD hospital evaluations revealed gaps in respondents' knowledge of organ donation, brain death, and referral criteria; a reluctance to declare brain death; and a rocky relationship between the hospitals and the organ procurement organization. As a result of the interventions, 9 hospitals' environments for organ donation improved, 7 showed no change, and 1 was worse.
