The National Deceased Donation Course for Intensive Care Medicine (ICM) Trainees
Organ and tissue donation is an important aspect of end-of-life care.
Deceased donation is ethically, legally and emotionally complex. Staff involved in deceased donation require expert levels of knowledge and skills in communication.
The National Deceased Donation Course for Intensive Care Medicine (ICM) Trainees (for trainees in either paediatric or adult intensive care medicine) allows staff training and development in a safe environment while enacting real-time events.
