Thank you! Thank you! We have Reached the Goal!

Medical Training VideoThanks to over 100 donations from more than 90 donors, we have reached the goal to raise $20,000 to produce the training video for medical professionals on caring for patients who have had a near-death experience. The target is for Blue Marble Films to complete the video package by Feb. 2013.

Thank you to all our generous donors! You have helped us meet this challenge in just 8 short months. You know how important it is for medical professionals to understand near-death experiences and how to care for NDE patients.

It's not too late to give: we still need additional funds for follow-on work, like in-depth video interviews and a veterans focus, so if you would still like to contribute, make a secure donation to this project here.

Help us make the NDE Training Video a reality!

Doctors and nurses sometimes do not understand how to treat patients who have had near-death experiences, because they have had no training about NDEs. Our Training Video will provide medical professionals (1) information on what NDEs are and (2) a protocol for how to talk with and care for NDE patients. The NDE Medical Training Video package will include a 30-minute video, a PowerPoint presentation, brochures, and other training materials.

A five-minute promotional video has been created to encourage support for this project, featuring IANDS President Diane Corcoran, R.N., Ph.D., critical care physician Dr. Laurin Bellg, neurosurgeon and NDEr Dr. Eben Alexander, and psychiatrist and NDE researcher Dr. Bruce Greyson. For more information and to donate toward producing the NDE Medical Training Video package, visit www.IANDS.org/video. Help us make the NDE Medical Training Video a reality!

IANDS featured in news series on NDEs

Diane Corcoran - July 1970A series of articles on near-death experiences was published recently over four days in the Durham Herald-Sun, with an article about IANDS President Diane Corcoran's work with military veterans and one about Board member Robert Mays' research on consciousness. "Retired colonel has dealt with near-death experiences since Vietnam War" describes Corcoran's work over 40 years to help veterans who have experienced an NDE and to teach nurses and other military medical personnel to take soldiers' accounts seriously and to try to understand more about the near-death experience.

"Near-death researcher believes the mind survives death" describes the work of Robert and Suzanne Mays on the nature of consciousness based on evidence from NDEs. For the Mayses, the mind is "an energetic entity" that separates from the body as people are dying. A strong case can be made that the mind survives death.
