Kidney transplantation part 35

 

Kidney 13

PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT

A psychological assessment is performed to make sure the living kidney donor is certain about donating and making a voluntary and informed choice.

Living kidney donors must be fully aware of the risks to their own health. The transplant team helps the donor to weigh up the risks and benefits and understand the medical procedure. This is called informed consent.

A psychological assessment also helps to make sure that the donor:

  • Is comfortable with the idea of donation
  • Is not being forced or paid for the donation
  • Has a good understanding of the physical and emotional outcomes of kidney donation
