Virtual Study Session – DNACPR

St Catherine’s Hospice Knowledge Exchange Team have developed new Interactive Training sessions in order to continue providing a programme of high quality education.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was introduced in the 1960s as a treatment to try to re-start the heart from a sudden cardiac arrest. However, when the heart stops because a person is dying from an irreversible condition, attempting CPR will not prevent death; for some it may prolong or increase suffering.

Healthcare professionals are aware that conversations about dying, and about whether or not CPR will be attempted can be difficult and distressing for all involved.

This course offers advice on the considerations needed to undertake these sensitive conversations, the relevant ethical principles involved and the process required when completing DNACPR forms.

What will I learn?

  • Advance care planning conversations
  • Ethical and legal principles
  • Benefits and burdens
  • Capacity considerations
  • Recording decisions and communication decisions
  • Competence framework*

*an identified, competent work based assessor is required

Before booking onto this course please ensure permission from your employer is granted for you to complete DNACPR forms in practice.

This session will be delivered ONLINE by St Catherine’s Hospice. You would need to have access to a computer or mobile device with internet connection, a webcam and a microphone.

Please note attendees must log into the event via the invite received from St Catherine’s Hospice 15 minutes before the start.
