2K: A Final Act of Care For Patients and Professionals

Sally Almond; Maria Schaff

Our work doesn’t end when a patient passes away. This simple truth is very apparent when you are tasked with completing the death certificate. Session will provide information and resources to demystify cause of death statements and your responsibilities.

By the end of the session, learners will be able to:

  • Find and report the most complete and accurate cause of death
  • List resources for death certificate completion and identify their role in the vital record system
