The contradiction solution is the regulation that implements the broad approval of the population for Transplantation and organ donation the best. So Yes.

Yes, the experience in other countries, the contradiction solution increases the willingness to donate organs. That would mean for the many patients new hope because it would reduce the extremely long waiting times for an Organ.daily mirror tomorrow location Free

How the law changed their work as a doctor?
a day In the clinic would improve the Situation especially for the families of the deceased greatly. You wear so far, in most cases, the decision for or against organ donation in an extremely stressful Situation, after you have just lost a loved one. In the future, would you be involved as a "witness" but not as "decision-makers" – if the Deceased has not objected during his lifetime, could they expect an approval.
What could be better regulated?
The already adopted structural improvements can be used in conjunction with the opposition scheme, to be fully effective. Hospitals would be required with the new scheme, to examine each individual case to determine whether the individual has objected during his lifetime, and for the structural measures, the necessary resources are available.
