Nursing Roles in Organ Donation

Monday 5th October 3pm-4pm

As critical care nurses it is important to understand our role within organ donation so that we can support both the families of the patients you care whom may become an organ donor or indeed more junior staff working within Critical Care.
 
This session aims to highlight your role and how you can support and be supported in this process.
 
Our guest speakers were Helen Bentley, Jill Featherstone and Claire Roberts from the National Organ Donation and Transplantation programme, NHS Blood and Transplant.

The legislation around organ donation has changed-what critical care nurses need to know?

Friday 11th September 2020 

The law around organ donation in England has changed. All adults in England are now considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.

This is commonly referred to as an ‘opt out’ system. You may also hear it referred to as 'Max and Keira's Law'. You still have a choice whether or not you want to become a donor and your family will be consulted.

As critical care nurses it is important to understand the law change in case families of the patients you care for ask you what the law change means.

This session aimed to clarify your role and demystify the legislation and answer any questions you may have.

Our guest speakers were Phil Walton, Cathy Miller, Louise Hubner and Claire Roberts

23 April 2020- Circle of Life from PICU to AICU: Care of the adult ICU patient for PICU nurses

With an ever-increasing demand on adult critical care services across the country, some paediatric critical care teams have started to admit critically ill adult patients into paediatric critical care units.  With this in mind, we wanted to support our paediatric critical care nurses by providing an update in the nursing management of the critically ill adult patient.  The session aims were to provide a brief overview alongside the opportunity to ask any questions of our adult critical care nurses. 

We would like to thank PICS and ESPIC alongside Dr Lyvonne Tume for this opportunity to share our practice to help PICU nurses who have stepped up and have taken on the challenge in managing adult critically ill patients in this unprecedented time. We hope you find these resources and references useful.
