Funeral Director’s Role
The role of a funeral director is key in the organ and tissue donation process. Funeral directors talk directly to the family about funeral arrangements after donation occurs. Their care assists families in their grieving process and helps to make sure the families have a more positive funeral experience.
By informing funeral directors about the importance of donation and the details of the donation process, we hope to increase the bond between donor families, funeral directors, and Intermountain Donor Services.
Outside resources for funeral directors include:
- National Funeral Directors Association
- The Utah Funeral Directors Association
- American Board of Funeral Service Education
- Cremation Association of North America
