Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health

General Scheme of the Human Tissue (Transplantation, Post-Mortem, Anatomical Examination, and Public Display) Bill 2018: Discussion

Professor Jim Egan:

The suggestion has merit. It underlines the importance of training nurses. It is recognised as a potential event, but the core intention is to achieve consensus. In their training specialist nurses role-play that circumstance. It goes back to the system and infrastructure in place. We have people trained to deal with potential conflict and arrive at a consensus, whether positive or negative.
