This course will be delivered by one of our leading tutors who has many years of experience within the field and is aimed towards Qualified Nurses who may have a responsibility to verify that death has taken place. The first part of the workshop will examine policies and legal aspects of verifying death, look at untoward incidents and also discuss what support should be available to staff who verify death. The second part of the course surrounds the competence required to carry out this procedure. It consists of a written assessment and a practical assessment of the skills needed. A pass mark of 80% is required on the written assessment and participants must be able to demonstrate the practical examination of a body.
