Beginning a conversation on the topic of resuscitation with your patient and their families can be difficult. Often, resuscitation is best discussed in the context of a wider conversation and there are opportunities along a patient’s journey to have this conversation.

The second module of GatewayC’s Lung Cancer – End of Life Care course examines how to manage pain and advance care planning, with particular reference to resuscitation and preferred place of care.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Develop skills which enable patients and their families to articulate their symptoms and concerns
  • Assess, respond and offer support to patients and their families
  • Develop increased knowledge and confidence in initiating conversations around death and dying

The second module also includes a full interview with a Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Dr Waterman, who discusses the three key time points when a discussion about a patient’s resuscitation wishes could take place. This includes at the point of:

  • Diagnosis
