From the 11th to 13th of October 2017 the TPM-DTI Foundation visited Ireland for the second time. The stay at the country included a visit to selected hospitals and a training course.
They visited the Cork University Hospital (CUH), the largest university teaching hospital in Ireland. That visit had interventions of the head of the Anaesthesia department, Doctor Brian O’Brien, and the consultant in Emergency Medicine, Adrian Murphy.
Other of the activities included in the visit were doing the analysis of hospital data for the development of strategies to improve and increase the organ donation in CUH as well as assisting to the Organ Donation Study day course: Donation after Cardiac Death held at the Auditorium of the university.
Moreover, during the stay in Ireland, the DTI team also visited the Waterford University Hospital where they discussed with health professionals about their knowledge of the potential of donors, the actions that must be taken to activate the alert and how they feel when donation procedures have already been carried out.
The last day in Waterford a Hospital-Bases Introductory TPM Course was held in Faithlegg Hotel conference. The participation and involvement in the course was great.
