The public consultation is now live on what is now termed the Emergency Care and Treatment Plan (ECTP) that has emerged from the national working group led by the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Royal College of Nursing.
The consultation takes the form of a survey and includes a proposed form and accompanying information and guidance.
The consultation period ends at 0900 on Monday 29th February 2016.
The Emergency Care and Treatment Plan records a personal summary of decisions about what types of care and treatment an individual would or would not want to receive, and about what types of care and treatment would or would not be of potential benefit to them if their health deteriorates and they are unable to make choices at the time.
It aims to ensure that each individual receives the best possible treatment for their specific situation in any setting (e.g. their home, nursing home, hospital, hospice, or during an ambulance journey).
We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.How can I get involved?
