Yesterday, I presented a summary of organ allocation in the United States at the Uehiro Center for Practical Ethics in Oxford. I focused on the priority formulas that UNOS uses to allocate decease donor organs.
While I tried to exclude the even messier issues concerning who gets on the list in the first place. But one questioner pushed me on this. I basically conceded that UNOS is like the well-orchestrated musicians on the deck of the Titanic.
