TOLFO, Fernando et al. The insertion of the nurse in intra-hospital commission of organ and tissue donation. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.50, pp.185-223.  Epub Dec 14, 2020. ISSN 1695-6141.


To recognize how the insertion of the nurse in an in-hospital commission of donation of organs and tissues for transplantation is, as well as the obtaining of knowledge to act in this one.


It is a qualitative, descriptive and exploratory research, carried out with 12 nurses of intra-hospital commission of organ and tissue donation. Data were collected through a semi-structured interview and analyzed through content analysis.


It was evidenced that the nurses are indicated to act in intra-hospital commission of donation of organs and tissues for transplantation without adequate preparation. The knowledge occurs later to the insertion in the referred committee, usually, next to events and support in the literature of the area, since there is no consistent approach about the subject in the professional formation.


Educational measures should be included in the health services and academia as a way of providing the necessary subsidies so that nurses can have a more effective participation in these commissions.
