Insights into Nurse Education: New Tools to Increase Referrals & Build Relationships

Recorded On: 07/25/2018

Nurses are on the front lines when it comes to hospital referrals for cornea donation, and educating nurses about the role that they have can help reduce referral times and create a beneficial partnership. During this webinar session planned by the Donor Development Committee, three speakers discuss new hospital development tools that they have each implemented at their eye banks to educate nurses about eye donation. These tools and methods of communication have strengthened relationships with nurses and reduced referral times.

These tools include audio/visual education methods, poster series, specialized forms, Med Ed live session and more. If you are looking for ways to educate and communicate with nurses at your local hospitals, purchase this webinar recording today!
