Organ and Tissue Donation and Recovery
Recent studies have shown that nurses' attitudes and advocacy to discuss transplantation among colleagues and with others increased following the appropriate education and practice support. Additionally, when encouraged to participate in organ donation and transplantation education, nurses demonstrated increased confidence in working with transplant patients and in addressing the need to educate their communities about organ donation, encouraging others to get involved in local organ donation and transplantation programs.
This course will provide basic learning for nurses in the coordination of organ donation and transplantation; and, to increase nursing advocacy to increase the rates of organ donation in their local areas.
