- The multidisciplinary guideline 'Organ donation following euthanasia' was published in March 2017 at request of the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport.- This guideline provides recommendations for the organisation and implementation of a request to donate organs expressed by a patient who asks for euthanasia.- It is vital to avoid any conflict of interest while the patient requesting organ donation following euthanasia is still alive.- The person who carries out the euthanasia procedure is responsible for assessing the degree of unbearable suffering and for guaranteeing that potential organ donation is well-considered and voluntary.- During the procedure everything possible must be done to ensure a minimal burden for the patient and the family.
