This course covers a wide range of aspects on organ donation and grief counselling. Grief counselling is of utmost importance for a nurse and ICU staff as they encounter a lot of deaths, our sincere words can reduce the pain and sorrows of the grieving family.
I found it to be very helpful for those who want to become a transplant nurse or transplant coordinator. Thank you, MOHAN Foundation, for developing such amazing content.
