Medical Education

Cascade Life Alliance’s mission includes educating medical professionals about organ, tissue and eye donation. The hospital services team provides materials, in-services and individual education as requested to help hospitals maximize organs and tissue for transplantation.


Medical professional education can include arranging and/or providing presentations and materials at:

  • New staff orientation (hospital-wide and unit-specific)
  • Resident orientation
  • Continuing education workshops / classes
  • Nurses skills days
  • Medical conferences and symposiums
  • Brown-bag lunch talks to staff
  • Nearly any appropriate forum can be an educational opportunity

Contact Hospital Development at (503) 494-5560 to request professional education.
