With more than 100 000 patients waiting for organs on the waiting list, we have our work cut out for us. Transplant education, when done well, can help patients make informed choices and may increase the number of individuals who donate organs before or after their death. The authors in the December 2008 and March 2009 issues of Progress in Transplantation suggest modifications to improve how transplant and organ donation education is administered; we recommend that these suggestions be used in research and educational interventions nationwide.
