ReSPECT Process Training

Course description

This training informs healthcare professionals on how to support individuals with the ReSPECT Process, to plan for their emergency care.

What is ReSPECT?

ReSPECT stands for Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment.

The ReSPECT process creates a personalised recommendation for your clinical care in emergency situations, where you are not able to make decisions or express your wishes.

A ReSPECT plan is created through conversations between yourself and one or more of the health professionals who are involved with your care. The recommendations should respect both patient preferences and clinical judgement.

ReSPECT is used across a range of health and care settings, including your own home, an ambulance, a care home, a hospice, or a hospital.

Who is it for?

ReSPECT can be for anyone who wants to record their care and treatment preferences, but will be particularly relevant for those who have complex health needs, are likely to be nearing the end of life, or at risk of sudden deterioration or cardiac arrest.
