Rheinland-Pfalz is active in organ donations
The sponsor of the initiative "(M)ein Klick fürs Leben" (one click for life), Julia Klöckner, is confident about 2011
The number of organ donors is growing in Rheinland-Pfalz. Based on preliminary numbers, 86 donors were registered in 2010, 27 more than the prior year. A total of 321 organs were obtained from these donors (185 in 2009), reported the DSO (German Foundation for Organ Transplantation) at the beginning of the year. In order to increase the willingness to donate organs, CompuGroup Medical is actively addressing the physicians and residents of Rheinland-Pfalz with an initiative for the topic of organ donation.
The sponsor, Julia Klöckner, is optimistic about the growth in the number of donors and the initiative: "I am very optimistic about 2011 - three fourth of all residents are willing to donate their organs after their death, but do not have an organ donor ID. We need more education and support so these people will also document their decision. This is exactly the approach we are taking with our "(M)ein Klick fürs Leben" initiative."
CompuGroup Medical has sent flyers with 2 donor organ ID's each to 670,000 households and 700 medical offices in Rheinland-Pfalz. An additional 6,000 flyers were provided to the sponsor, Julia Klöckner, to be distributed by district associations during healthcare policy events. In addition, the company is inviting physicians to approach their patients via the doctor information system, since organ donor ID's are primarily filled out by people that have been educated about it. It is the initiative's goal to motivate as many people as possible to address this important topic, to think about it and to make a conscious decision.
Organ donor ID's can be downloaded easily from the Internet at www.mein-klick-fuers-leben.de. The web site also provides information about the initiative and the topic of organ donation.
