About the Course

Considering someone for organ and tissue donation at the end of life is complicated. The boundary between life and death is more complex than ever before and it falls to medical professionals to help clarify a situation at an often confusing and emotionally stressful time. In this course you will learn about the science behind death determination and when it is possible for deceased organ donation take place. The lectures will cover medical standards at the end of life - from brain death testing, to requesting informed consent from a grieving family.

This course will help you to ensure that the option of organ donation is compassionately explored in all appropriate situations at the end of life in the best way possible.

interesting about or donation. Although, it is the 2010s, as I have surprised there was no mention of growing organs using 3-D printers or any futuristic technologies used that would help in organ donation.

A wonderful journey, from understanding death to understanding life! I'm very grateful. David (the teacher) is super inspirational!! :-) I feel that he gave us wisdom as well, not just knowledge. I'd take this course again at any time.
