Note that Policy 14 has multiple references to other policies that are applicable to living donors, such as reporting requirements that need our cooperation to be fulfilled, and the details of the additional priority we can elect to receive in the deceased donor allocation system if we are ever in end stage renal disease and elect transplantation as preferred therapy.
