More Info...

ACP and DNACPR  stand for ‘Advance care planning’ and ‘Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation’. Making the decision not to attempt CPR in certain situations at the end life is an emotive one, but vital to ensuring that healthcare professionals know what (and what not) to do in the event of sudden death. This course will help you to have DNACPR discussions and complete the DNACPR form as part of the Advance Care Planning (ACP) process. By increasing awareness of the key elements of DNACPR, it will improve your confidence in initiating and engaging in end of life discussions with patients; and shows how important it is to provide a consistent approach in line with best clinical practice.

Who is this course for?
Senior health and social care professionals from all clinical settings who have direct contact with patients, clients and residents approaching end of life.
