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:
