ABOUT THE BOOK
CPTC Exam Review and Handbook for the Organ Procurement Coordinator helps test takers prepare for the Certified Procurement Transplant Certification (CPTC) Exam through compiling current research, UNOS policies, and experiential knowledge along with 150 practice questions.
Providing families with the legacy of organ donation in their worst moments is often the most precious reward for this emotionally and intellectually draining position. The coordinator is compassionate, caring, and willing to comfort a family consumed with grief. The coordinator believes that donation provides healing and hope for grieving families and that their ultimate goal is to share life where one has been so sadly lost.
Organ procurement coordinators are responsible for bridging organs from donor to recipient. To accomplish this, one needs a broad set of skills—including hospital development, public education, requesting consent, death declaration issues, donor management, organ sharing, recovery, and packaging and labeling requirements. The Coordinator should be excellent at multitasking, organizing, and communicating, and he or she shouldn’t mind a day full of surprises. The best organ procurement coordinators juggle these tasks with a polite smile.
The purpose of this guide is to provide the organ procurement coordinator with the information needed to pass the Certified Procurement Transplant Coordinator (CPTC) exam as well as a handbook for the Coordinator to enhance his or her knowledge in the transplant field. The guide explores the required skill sets using UNOS policies, current research, and experiential.
