This review was carried out with the aim of updating an existing systematic review.

This paper presents three main strands of evidence:

  1. International evidence suggests that an association exists between presumed consent legislation and increased organ donation rates;
  2. Recent surveys indicate that there is significant support for the introduction of an opt-out system for organ donation in Wales;
  3. Experimental literature provides evidence for a mechanism through which presumed consent might increase organ donation, through the influence of the default position.
