Summary "Intended to improve the current system of organ procurement and transplantation, the "Final Rule," a 1998 regulation issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, sparked further controversy with its attempts to eliminate the apparent geographic disparities in the time an individual must wait for an organ." "Organ Procurement and Transplantation: Assessing Current Policies and the Potential Impact of the HHS Final Rule assesses the potential impact of the Final Rule on organ transplantation. The committee reviews the current system, its policies and practices, the developments leading up to the Final Rule, and the potential impact of the rule's major provisions." "With compassion for patients and dispassion for the evidence, Organ Procurement and Transplantation: Assessing Current Policies and the Potential Impact of the HHS Final Rule will be of interest to anyone involved in organ transplantation: policy makers, regulators, hospital administrators, insurers, medical personnel, and patient advocates."--Jacket
