ELearning Modules on Advance Care planning and Medicolegal aspects of end of life care

21 September 2017

Barnet CEPN has been working in collaboration with local GPs to create a series of eLearning modules on advance care planning:

If there is one thing that we can be certain of in life, it is that eventually we will die. But despite this fact we (both health care professionals and patients) find it a hugely difficult subject to talk about.  

It’s this failure to initiate a conversation that results in peoples’ wishes going ignored or unfulfilled. If we do not know how to communicate what we want, and those around us do not know how to listen, it is almost impossible to express a clear choice.

These series of eLearning modules hope to introduce healthcare professionals to advance care planning, mental capacity and medicolegal aspects of end of life care. We hope to provide a framework that doctors, nurses and other health care professionals can use to initiate these conversations and reverse this trend. 

This series is free to access can be accessed here.
