Update to the forms for Diagnosing Death using Neurological Criteria

29 November 2019

The FICM and ICS have, since 2012, endorsed forms for the Diagnosis of Death using Neurological Criteria (brain-stem death), which are consistent with and should be used in conjunction with, the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AOMRC) -  A Code of Practice for the Diagnosis and Confirmation of Death.

The updated forms have been re-endorsed by The FICM and ICS and should replace the older versions.

Updated forms:

Diagnosis of Death using Neurological Criteria Form - Long Version

Diagnosis of Death using Neurological Criteria Form - Short Version
