Advance Care Planning

In 2020 Dorothy House has made Advance Care Planning a priority. We want to support the professionals in our community to have an up-to-date range of resources available for signposting. Below are four resources that may be useful to you. The two CHAT Bundles are appropriate aids for professionals (in a hospital or community setting) to use when initiating a conversation with a patient, family member or carer. The Planning Ahead resources include a guide and a very basic form for a patient to record their wishes. There are many other resources available online and as we become aware of these and have the opportunity to trial them, we will add them to the list.
