Professionals Education and training Verification of expected death in adults Overview This two-hour workshop is to enable Registered Nurses who wish to take on the extended role of Verification of Expected Adult Death, or to update existing knowledge and skill within this role. The need for timely verification of death is widely recognised, to help relieve the anxiety and distress of families and to relieve the pressure of overstretched GPs and out of hours services. Timely verification - within one hour in a hospital setting and four hours in a community setting - is an important stage in the grieving process for relatives and a key time for support. Participants Registered Nurses only Methods Presentation, discussion, demonstration Learning outcomes At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to: understand the legal requirement and accountability perform a physical assessment to confirm death on a mannequin understand the documentation process be aware of implantable devices understand the definitions be aware of, and understand, the Nursing Home Protocol We will provide a certificate of attendance only.
