Paediatric organ donation resources

Training resources

In line with the recommendations from the National Paediatric and Neonatal Deceased Donation Strategy, we aim to fully support continuing education and shared practice, to ensure specialist nurses and clinical teams have the information, training, and support to ensure organ donation processes are in place which are relevant and appropriate for child / infant donors.

We have a three-tiered approach to education: local, regional and national / strategic training.

These resources are to help you deliver training at a local and regional level.
