The Living Donor Paired Exchange (LDPE) Registry is an innovative transplant possibility for patients across Canada with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The LDPE Registry provides a new chance for recipients who have an incompatible friend or family member who wants to donate a kidney. Now, this same incompatible pair can join the LDPE Registry with other pairs in the same situation with the possibility of exchanging donors.
In 2008, Canadian Blood Services assumed a number of responsibilities related to organ and tissue donation and transplantation (OTDT). Much of this work takes the form of engaging OTDT professionals in the areas of leading practice, system design, system performance improvement and the development of three important organ registries. Some of this work is public facing in that the organization supports public awareness and education on matters related to OTDT.
Organ Procurement Organizations
Each province and territory has an organization which is responsible for coordinating all organ and tissue donations. The organization serves as the link between donors and recipients, and is responsible for the retrieval, preservation and transportation of organs for transplantation. For more information on organ procurement organizations see the Organ Donation section in your region.
