Organ transplants are an expression of the scientific and technological development reached by sciences up to the present, especially in the field of medicine. For a transplant to occur there must be a donation (donor) and reception (recipient) and the act of donating reflects all the subjectivity of human beings, marked by the culture, environment, education, beliefs, ethical dilemmas and attitudes. This explains why the psychologist is an essential part of the multidisciplinary team. This guide define the steps, psychological techniques for diagnosis and psychological intervention, ethical aspects and other elements of interest to ensure the quality of psychological care in the context of organ donation and transplantation. To achieve this objective, we consulted the existing scientific literature on the subject, including guidelines of the World Health Organization, and the document was created by using the best references found in the review. The guide is a tool to guide the work of the psychologists who are part of the multidisciplinary teams involved in the acquisition and transplant of organs and it is consistent with the guidelines of the World Health Organization and experiences of Cuba and other countries.
