Brain Death Declaration often presents challenges for healthcare providers as it is a diagnosis that requires the utmost accuracy and urgency, especially when evaluating the possibility of organ procurement for transplantation. The goal of this webinar is to prepare physicians to accurately and consistently declare brain death through the uniform application of the American Academy of Neurology Practice Parameters and to educate critical care personnel who assist in or observe the process. Join us to hear from three leading experts as they highlight unique case studies, techniques, and effective communication strategies.
