“Recognise the requirements for reportable deaths”
When a request for coronial information or an inquest is planned this inevitably causes anxiety among health staff.
Unanticipated death and the legal requirements relating to such deaths need to be understood and procedures followed.

In this session you will:
- Gain an understanding of the role of the coroner
- Recognise the requirements for reportable deaths
- Explore the health-related issues that may affect our work as Nurses
- Apply the Coronial legislation to relevant decision making
