Description

On Tuesday 26th February at the Sandwell Business Solutions Centre, the Black Country Growth Hub is hosting a training session from the Care Training Company regarding Verification of Expected Death.

What is it? Verification of Expected Death is the process of the registered nurse deciding that death has occurred. This must be done in line with local policy and procedures which will list circumstances where this skill can be carried out.

The registered nurse is not suggesting the cause of death but the fact that death has occurred. The nurse will carry out clinical checks which the training demonstrates and complete approriate documentation aswell as clear communication to all involved during this sensitve time.





The main aims of the courses are to provide:

  • Understand what constitutes an “expected death”
  • Identify and recognise the clinical signs of death
  • Perform a relevant clinical examination
  • Terminology including certification, verification & expected death
  • Diagnosis and recognition of death
  • Communication and difficult conversations
  • Understand of the legal and professionals framework in relation to the verification of expectant death
  • Understand the role of the Coroner and the related legal issues
  • Person-centred care
  • Is there such a thing as a good death? Share the times we got it wrong but also when we got it RIGHT!
  • Documentation – recording the fact of death accurately
  • Discussion around evidence of competency

Approximately 3 hours.

Upon completion of this course, delegates will have gained in-depth knowledge of verification of expected death.

They will be able to identify the clinical signs of death through the use of clinical examination.

Delegates will have knowledge of terminology and understand coroner’s responsibilities in more detail.




This training is open to all registered nurses but our initial focus is on those working in Nursing Homes.
