Abstract

For many years, the authorisation of organ procurement has been discussed as a contributory factor to the number of potential organ donors. This paper presents different forms of authorisation and their influence on the decisions of both individuals and society. The general legal framework for the authorisation of organ procurement in Poland is described along with the solutions implemented by countries in which both implicit and explicit consent models are in effect. The presented arguments suggest that the form of authorisation does not directly influence the number of organs procured for transplantation.
