Verification of Expected Death Training

Verification of Expected Death Training

CPD Points 6 | Duration 1 Days | £119.00 per delegate

Course Introduction

For every party involved: relatives, carers and healthcare workers, verification of death is an important process.
It needs to happen before anything else. Nurses in palliative care, hospices and in the community, should always be trained to verify expected death. This makes the process run smoothly, during a doctor’s absence or delay. Through this course, nurses will gain valuable practical insights, clinical skills and communication methods to perform a verification of expected death. This ensures that nurses are equipped with confidence and knowledge they need, to carry out the process in a timely, sensitive and competent way.

You will be allocated 6 CPD points on the completion of the course.
