Recommendation ID
Improving rates of identification and referral of potential donors:- What are the key components of an intervention to improve identification and referral rates?
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Why this is important:- Currently, the evidence for improving identification and referral rates consists mainly of observational reports of complex interventions, with most studies being of limited follow-up. Further research is needed to identify the components, or combinations of components, of the interventions that are effective in increasing identification and referral rates. These studies should have an appropriate length of follow-up to ensure a sustained impact in the longer term.
