LIFE-SUSTAINING TREATMENT DECISIONS
This course is under development for launch in Autumn 2020.
It will particularly focus on decision-making about clinically assisted nutrition and hydration for patients who don’t have capacity to make decisions for themselves. The course:
a) outlines law and guidance around decision-making about life-sustaining treatment (in the UK) and review diverse ethical debates
b) provides practical training in how to collate relevant information, run a best interests meeting, address differences of opinion, accommodate conscientious objection, and document decisions.
A trial version of the course will be ready in September. If you’d like to trail the course please email Jenny Kitzinger: KitzingerJ@cardiff.ac.uk
