About this webinar
The Association of Anaesthetists and NHS Blood and Transplant are proud to present the third monthly webinar on organ donation and related topics.
End of life discussions in acute settings such as ED, the medical wards and the ICU often involve staff delivering devastating news to families and relatives that they have never met. Our patients have often become critically ill suddenly and unexpectedly and these factors present unique challenges when communicating with relatives and patients.
This webinar introduces the ‘Shakespearean Tragedy’ approach to breaking bad news as a potential framework for clinicians to use when approaching such conversations. It also explores the role of the specialist nurse for organ donation and how, and when, the subject of organ donation should be broached. Presented by Dr Ben Ivory, UK national medical education lead for organ donation with NHS Blood and Transplant and Jill Featherstone, specialist nurse for organ donation and medical education lead with the professional development team at NHSBT.
