Public Education and Misinformation on Brain Death in Mainstream Media

The results of this study in Clinical Transplantation should come as no surprise.  Mainstream media provides poor education to the public on brain death. 

The authors argue that because public understanding of brain death impacts organ and tissue donation, it is important for physicians, organ procurement organizations, and transplant coordinators to improve public education on this topic.
