Advanced Care Planning 

 
The Gold Standards Framework suggests Advanced Care Planning as an integral part of Palliative / End of Life Care, but do your staff really know: 
 
What it means? 
How to write one? 
How to open the discussion? 
The difference between an Advanced Statement and an ADRT? 
How to discuss approaching end of life with clients and families? 
Our course will provide the answers to these and many more questions surrounding Advanced Care Planning and enable your staff to start writing effective care plans, whilst providing a caring, supportive and enabling environment for your clients.
