Description

Explaining brain death to family members can be very challenging.  There are the understandable emotional considerations that are critical for the initial grieving process.  We know it can be confusing for loved ones when they see the patient breathing and showing non-brain mediated movement.  Joyce Campbell, MSN, SCRN, CCRN, FNP-BC, a Neuroscience/Critical Care Clinical Expert, will provide the succinct information you need to more fully understand the testing associated with suspected brain death, how to assess for the myriad of clinical implications across the body systems and effective insights to address the moral distress that both families and staff experience.  Unforgettable case studies will be incorporated throughout the training.
