Advance Care Planning workshop including Do Not Attempt Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) awareness


Course description

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process of discussion and planning ahead in anticipation of deterioration in a person’s condition.

ACP can help guide patients, families and health care professionals in decision making at the end-of-life; this includes decisions around cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the key principles of which will be discussed.

In order to be able to do this, it’s important to identify when to start timely end-of-life discussions and to be familiar with the tools available to support.

The aim of this workshop is to improve confidence in end-of-life care discussions and to be familiar with the tools available to support.

This workshop does not include any assessment of competency of completion of DNACPR forms. Certificates of attendance will be issued; this is not a certificate of competency.
