About 300 hospitals nationwide will be selected as pioneers to set up a department to coordinate and promote organ donations among medical staff and to raise awareness of and standardize the practice, said an official.

The hospitals' medical staff will be trained using updated information about donation techniques, processes, regulations and policies, said Huang Jiefu, director of the China Organ Donation and Transplantation Commission and former vice-minister of health.

Additionally, the country's top health authority will introduce a monitoring system to scrutinize the process of brain death diagnosis for organ transplantations.
