Abstract

The psychological evaluation of living liver donors is a substantial part of the preoperative evaluation of donors in many transplantation centres around the globe and aims at securing decision autonomy and informed consent, verifying the psychological stability of the donor and ruling out psychosocial risks. The aims of this paper are to present a short overview of the current state of the psychosocial evaluation of living donors based on the existing literature and to discuss our centre's experience in the psychological evaluation of donors, the lessons we have learned in the past 10 years and an agenda for the future evaluation of donors and research.
