Organ Donation Database


Primary variables




List of variables not avaliable for download


The Organ Donation Database (ODD) is a national clinical quality database which contains data relating to all patients who die in an intensive care unit. The purpose of ODD is to monitor and improve the quality of professional healthcare in this field with the aim to achieve optimal utilization of the available organ potential, taking into account the attitude to organ donation of the deceased and/or the next of kin.

ODD is approved by the Danish Health Authority and is anchored in the Danish Center for Organ Donation. In February 2011, there was a parliamentary decision to adopt national targets for numbers of organ donors, including national targets for departmental awareness of organ donation and numbers of cases where relatives refuse organ donation. On the basis of this parliamentary resolution, the Parliamentary Healthcare Committee receives an annual briefing on the two national targets.

Data derives mainly from the registration sheets completed for all patients who die in an intensive department, which are then reported to the National Patient Register (LPR). Data also comes from the CPR register and Scandiatransplant.
