The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act 2019 was enacted on 20 May 2020. Before this, on 18 May, Lord Bethel acknowledged, in a House of Lords debate, that deemed consent may not come into practice immediately because of the impact of COVID-19 and the need to ensure that transplants went ahead when it was safe and legislation training for specialist nurses for organ and tissue donation (SNs) had been completed.

Redeployment of SNs to frontline NHS services, and restrictions placed on travel and social distancing, meant the final education and training sessions for the legislation change (module 3: consolidation), were adapted from a face-to-face content in order to be delivered via a virtual platform. Legislation (module 1) and conversation (module 2) have been evaluated previously (Miller et al, (2020).

The purpose of this article is to evaluate module 3 and discuss how the legislation change has been applied in the clinical context.
