Whole body donations are made through the UQTR's body donation program and the anatomy department. All donations are accepted through the practice of informed consent. During life, donors are provided information about the research and educational practices carried out at UQTR including the SSRT. Donors are given the option to consent to donation to anatomical teaching, forensic science research (SSRT) or both. Discussion with family and loved ones is highly encouraged to ensure that the donor's post-mortem wishes are fulfilled.
At the completion of studies, which will run no longer than 3 years, individual remains will be collected and cremated by a local funeral service. The donor's family will receive the ashes for final disposition. All donors of the SSRT will be honoured at a commemorative service that is held annually for donor friends and family.
