Intended Audience

Precise and accurate determination of death is crucial from medical, ethical and legal standpoints. However, variability in practice leads to confusion and uncertainty among care providers and patients’ families.
Nurses play a significant role in the care of the patient who is undergoing brain death testing and with the patient’s family who needs to make a rapid transition from cure to end of life. Having a clear understanding of brain death can help nurses ensure continued collaborative care for the patient for whom brain death testing is being considered as well as provide support for family members who are in crisis and unclear about the prognosis and end of life care.

Program Objectives
At the end of the webinar, the learner will be able to:
• Identify at least two tests performed
during the brain death exam.
• Name those conditions that mimic brain death.
• State the nurse’s role in the management of the patient during brain death determination.
• Identify strategies that will aid the family in understanding a brain death diagnosis.
