Finessing the Family Donation Conversation Pre-Workshop

The Finessing the family Donation Conversation workshop will discuss the significance of raising the topic of organ donation and the importance of nuancing the conversation to ensure that families are supported and empowered to make an informed and enduring donation decision. The workshop is being held on Monday 14th October 2019 ahead of the World Congress of Intensive Care at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

This session will delve into an overview of what we presently believe in Australia as the guiding principles for every family donation conversation. Further it will focus on key elements of a donation conversation and how to navigate some of the challenges. And finally the workshop will conclude with presentation and discussion on the work that has and continues to be done in Australia to improve our donation conversations and consent rates.

The workshop is open to clinicians attending the World Congress and other clinicians involved in family donation conversations.
