This half study day can be used as a refresher for the principles of advance care planning or to improve and gain 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 behalf of each of our patients. This course, also puts ReSPECT into context with the overarching umbrella of ACP and can be used to complement the current ReSPECT training workshops at level 2 (running across West Sussex) and the online training at level 1 (that is available for all).

We will be using different mediums to discuss death and dying so please be aware of the emotive side to this key workshop.

This course would be complemented by Sage & Thyme® advance care planning and end of life conversations workshop to give you a tool to introduce the topic.

This course will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams which can be booked below - please ensure that individual emails are supplied as we are unable to accept generic emails.
