Verification of Expected Death Training Course
This 3 hour course is aimed at nurses working in primary care, supportive care and care homes. It will support the development of your knowledge and skills to competently verify expected death of adults. It is not limited to any particular setting or situation, but enables the nurse to understand the procedure to verify death within the context of expected death. All NMC registered practitioners must ensure that they have been assessed & signed off as competent against the relevant organisational competencies prior to carrying out the clinical procedure.
