The partnership between WRTC and our hospital providers is crucial to realizing the goal of maximizing organ, eye and tissue donation for our community. WRTC provides training to our hospital partners on all aspects of the donation process so that providers better understand each step. By working together, we ensure that families receive comprehensive end-of-life care including the opportunity to make informed decisions about donation.
WRTC offers a multitude of resources to enhance the knowledge and familiarity of this complex and infrequent process. Go to beadonor.org/WRTCOnTheGo to access to these FREE resources. The website can easily be bookmarked and/or added to your phones home screen for quick and easy future access.
DONATION RESOURCE SPECIALIST (DRS) TRAINING
The Donation Resource Specialist (DRS) Training is a free day-long program designed to educate physicians, fellows, residents, nurses, and social workers on best practices in the organ, eye and tissue donation process. In this program, we provide an opportunity for registrants to connect to purpose by hearing from a donor family member, an organ recipient and a tissue recipient. Topics include clinical triggers for referral, how medical suitability is established, donation best practices, and how to plan together for an optimal family discussion about donation.
Upon completion, attendees will receive 7.5 free nursing, 7.5 free physician or 7.0 free social work continuing education credits. Attendance for the entire program is mandatory for nursing and social work credits. Partial attendance credit can be given to physicians.
Registration isFor each DRS, space is limited. Please provide early notification if you can no longer attend the program.
We request you sign up for only ONE (1) DRS at a time to give as many partners as possible an opportunity to attend.
