This study morning can be used as a refresher for the principles of Advance Care Planning or to enhance your knowledge base.
Advance care planning has received a higher profile and, more discussion due to covid-19 but, it is vital to understand all parts of this important process (legal and non-legal). Similarly, we all have a role to play in facilitating this process to the best of our abilities on our behalf of each of our patients. This study session will explore the role of ReSPECT and its context within Advance Care Planning.
We will be using different mediums to discuss death and dying so please be aware of the emotive side to this key workshop.
Date: Tuesday 24 November 2020
Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm
Cost: FREE to those working in the NHS West Sussex CCG.
Who should attend: all healthcare professionals in all clinical settings involved in ACP conversations
