‘Understanding DNACPR’: Information and Advice about Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Decisions

in Resources

Clinical decisions relating to Do Not Attempt CPR (DNACPR) are often very difficult for patients and their loved ones, and the ways in which these decisions are made can seem unclear and difficult to understand, particularly during times of crisis. That’s why timely, sensitive and informed discussions about DNACPR are vitally important.

It’s also important that older people and their families are able access information and advice about the DNACPR process, which can be very helpful if we ever find ourselves in this situation.

That’s why the Commissioner has created this hub, to provide you with key information and connect you to a wide range of useful resources.
