Religious beliefs and attitudes to organ donation

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 30 July 2015
This research set out to explore the relationship between religious beliefs and organ donation, with a particular emphasis on presumed consent.

The viewpoint of each religion was explored, before reviewing international research investigating the relationship between religion and organ donation across different consent systems. Findings from a small-scale survey of Christians in Wales are also presented, which aimed to address an information gap in engagement work being carried out with faith groups and BME communities across Wales.
