Verification of Death Training For Nurses - Level 3 - Online Course - CPD Accredited.

Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Verification of Death Training for Nurses training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

When a patient/resident dies, the registered nurse has a duty to inform the doctor who has been treating them immediately. In the event of expected death, the doctor may pre-arrange to be informed at another time.

Confirmation or verification of death is defined as deciding whether a person is actually deceased. Verification of death can be undertaken by a competent registered nurse in line with their employer’s policies to determine local agreements about the circumstances in which this can be done. In contrast, certification of death is done by a registered medical practitioner.
