Caring for potential organ donors in the ICU requires a holistic and compassionate approach prioritising the patient’s well-being, family, and healthcare team.

As part of end-of-life care, the primary goal is to provide optimal medical care to the patient while maintaining organ viability for donation. Organ donation also has complex ethical, legal, and medical considerations. It is essential to ensure all ICU care necessary for carrying out an ethical donation process following established protocols and guidelines. Join the webinar and learn more from the experts’ talk.
