Care Planning During a Pandemic

CPD Activity - 2 points

Free Online Webinar

Care planning during a pandemic: Advance Care Directive, Advance Care Plan and Enduring Guardianship


In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, planning for future medical treatment and personal care, as well as ultimate health outcomes is now more relevant than ever. Studies have shown that although such planning improves the end of life experience for both patients and relatives, the actual prevalence of such planning is staggeringly low.

The primary care setting provides a unique opportunity for discussion of patient-centred care, and the role of the GP in initiating and facilitating care planning cannot be underestimated.This workshop will discuss how to incorporate planning into your healthcare provision, the legal and ethical aspects of planning, barriers to implementation and resources for the GP.

Date: Thursday 11 June 2020
