Potential Donor Audit
The national Potential Donor Audit (PDA) commenced in 2003 as part of a series of measures to improve organ donation. The principal aim of this audit was to determine the potential number of solid organ donors in the UK.
The data collection was revised in October 2009, which changed some of the wording of the questions being asked, to aid clarity, and the definitions of terms used. More reasons for why particular patients did not become solid organ donors were also collected.
During the time period reported below, the PDA collected information on patient deaths in ICUs and emergency departments but excluded cardiothoracic ICUs and wards. Patients aged 76 years or over were also excluded from the national audit criteria.
On 1 April 2013, the upper age limit increased from 75 to 80 years and cardiothoracic ICUs are now audited. At the same time, changes were made to certain definitions, terminology and questions.
