Verification of Expected Death for Nurses and AHPs

Duration: 1 Day(s)
CPD Hours: 8
Start Time: 09:15
End Time: 04:30

OVERVIEW

Verification of the fact of death is a formal process in line with National Guidance associated with responsibilities of identification and notification.

The course aims to train Registered Nurses working in variety of clinical settings (Hospitals, Community, Care Homes, Hospice) and come across situations where they will need the competency and skill set to verify an expected death. This will enable them to care appropriately for the deceased thereby minimising distress for families and carers following an expected death any time during day or night.

Although doctors confirm the death, nurses will continue to use the term ‘verification of expected death.’
