Palliative Shared Care Podcast featuring Professor Hugh Grantham

Available Now

Presented by Professor. Hugh Grantham, Professor of Paramedics, Flinders University and Senior Medical Practitioner, South Australian Ambulance Service, Adelaide, South Australia.
All of our podcasts will be chaired by a GP Palliative Shared Care Program Advisor.

Conversations involving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at the end of life can be extremely difficult. The chance of survival following cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in adults is between 5-20% depending on the circumstances. Although CPR can be attempted on anyone, there comes a time for some people when it is not in their best interests to do this. It may then be appropriate for a GP to consider a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order to enable the person to die with dignity. This podcast will explore this process to ensure the best decision is made for the client and family.

• Discuss Advanced Care Directives and Clinical Planning for End of Life to enhance   the safety and quality of patient care
• Review the Australian Resuscitation Council’s policy on resuscitation.
• Assess and manage scenarios when General Practitioners should not attempt any resuscitation.
