Should Wessex implement ReSPECT process? – The NIHR CLAHRC Wessex hosted event.

24 May 2017

On May 11 2017, the NIHR CLAHRC Team brought together 44 delegates from organisations across the Wessex region and beyond as well as wide range of people including the public, paramedics, nursing staff, clinicians, managers and researchers.

The event was to examine and reflect on whether the ReSPECT approach to decision making for emergency care should be adopted. ReSPECT stands for the Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment.

Our event was just one of a number organised to hear feedback and reaction to the ReSPECT process and to discuss what barriers may exist in implementing it across the full range of health care environments

The team are now gathering anonymous feedback through an online survey, which will be pulled together and shared with those who came to the event. We look forward to seeing how the region and individual organisations within it respond going forward.
