A ‘Critical pathway for deceased tissue donation’ was developed by the European Committee on Organ Transplantation of the Council of Europe (CD-P-TO) with the aim of providing a common systematic approach to the deceased tissue donation process. Definitions of tissue donors according to the donation stage have been developed so that they can be adapted to different local scenarios. This critical pathway can be used retrospectively to evaluate the potential of tissue donation, assess performance in the tissue donation process and identify areas for improvement. It sets the basis to build indicators to compare organizations, regions and countries. The critical pathway can also be used prospectively to promote good practices in tissue donation programmes aimed at covering the tissue transplantation needs of patients.
