The Brain Death Determination course, presented by the Neurocritical Care Society, aims to standardize the process of brain death diagnosis. This credentialing tool will help those clinicians who are allowed by their local laws to perform brain death determination to learn and demonstrate their level of understanding and expertise by:
- Highlighting the necessary steps that must be taken to determine brain death
- Reviewing various exam methods and discussing proper documentation
- Outlining appropriate communication with fellow providers and patient families
- Describing common pitfalls and barriers that may arise during the exam process
This course is accredited for 2 hours of continuing education. It includes a video 1 hour in length, and a 20-question exam and the completion of the video. Once the video has been watched and the exam passed with 80% or better, participants will be granted a certificate of completion.
The American Academy of Neurology has endorsed this education course.
