Lecturer Sonja Crane conducts a study day
Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) Workshop

9:30am - Monday 17th September 2018, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

Aim:

The aim of this workshop is to increase your awareness of the key legal and ethical principles surrounding do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DNACPR) decisions.

DNACPR principles provide a consistent approach to decision making across a variety of care settings and by following these principles, inappropriate, futile and unwanted CPR attempts may be avoided. Effective DNACPR discussions also help support a person’s wishes to be followed at end of life whether they are in a care home, hospital, hospice or in their own home. Lack of clear, sensitive and timely communication around DNACPR may increase anxiety for patients and families.

During this workshop you will observe and reflect upon a demonstration of a simulated DNACPR discussion, contributing to group debate and improving your confidence in end of life care discussions.

Target audience:

All health and social care professionals involved in caring for those patients with a life limiting illness and/or those providing care in residential and nursing homes.

Cost:

£50.00 (inc. all refreshments)

Venue:

Compton Care Learning and Development Centre
The Cedars
39 Compton Road West
Wolverhampton
WV3 9DW

What people have said about this workshop:

‘The role-play really showcased how good communication can make the conversation of DNACPR effective’
‘The day was interesting and very helpful to improve patient care and has given me a chance to update my skills’
