This is a re-run of our popular webinar run in February. Larna Woodyatt - Nurse Donation Specialist and Nicky Stitt – Statewide VAD Care Navigator will monitor and respond to your live Qs on the evening.

Join this 2-hour webinar to learn more about Organ Donation and how you may support your patients who seek VAD and also enquire about the potential for donating their organs after their VAD death
