Description

The Five Priorities of Caring for the Dying Person provides guidance for identifying when a person reaches the end of their life. In this session, attendees will gain an understanding of this framework and how to apply it to their role. The five priorities are:

  • recognising the dying phase
  • communicating sensitively
  • involving those important to the person
  • supporting family and others
  • plan and do

Entry requirements: There are no prerequisites for this course. Attendees may wish to attend the Opening the Spiritual Gate study day.

Time: Registration from 12.45pm. Course runs 1 – 4.30pm

Aims:

  • Be able to recognise and communicate clearly decisions made and actions taken in accordance with the person’s needs and wishes and ensure these are regularly reviewed and decisions revised accordingly.
  • Understand the importance of communicating sensitively with staff, the dying person and those identified as important to them.
  • Know how to involve the dying person and those identified as important to them in decisions about treatment and care to the extent that the dying person wants.
  • Understand the importance of actively exploring, respecting and meeting the needs of the family and others as identified as important to the dying person as far as possible.
  • To understand the principles of developing an agreed individual plan of care (including food and drink, symptom control and psychological, social and spiritual support) and the importance of its compassionate, co-ordinated delivery.
