Summary
Questions about transplant candidate suitability and priority made headlines earlier this year, when 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan's parents went to court (and to the media) to request that their daughter, dying of cystic fibrosis, be placed on the eligibility list for a lung transplant. The court's decision, UNOS's followup (Sarah got a new, fictitious birthdate to qualify to receive adult lungs), and Sarah's two double-lung procedures galvanized the transplant community, bioethicists, policymakers, and the public alike. Even as efforts continue to increase the organ supply, what should we do about our allocation systems? In this Medical Center Hour, three experts engage the medical, legal, and ethical questions raised by the Sarah Murnaghan case. Co-presented with the Institute for Practical Ethics and Public Life A John F. Anderson Memorial Lecture
