A nice little treck round the salient points. It also puts the current CQC Audit on DNACPR into context.

Engaging teacher bringing his wealth of experience in dealing with this subject that many doctors feel uncomfortable with. Useful tips and tricks for easing discussion about the subject with both patients and relatives.

He gave simple approach to establish care plan with the ceiling of care for patients with possible poor outcome including the unfortunate event of cardio-respiratory arrest and the consensus achieved after discussion with the patients and their relatives formulating a DNACPR decision. Emphasised on the necessity of a Best Interest Meeting and application of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) when the patient has no capacity to take part in the decision making.
