2 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place Background  Perceived lack of DNACPR Policy across NW in community setting  High degree of variance regarding DNACPR documentation/recording  Variable/lack of communication – patient, professional & organisational  Lack of policy integration between care settings and services

3 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place National DNACPR Developments  National EoLC Programme developing principles  North East produced Deciding Right  Deciding Right includes Emergency Health Care Planning, ADRT and DNACPR  East of England and South Central SHAs have implemented single DNACPR Policies with standard forms.  Indication that national principles will reflect Deciding Right publication

4 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place Regional DNACPR Developments  Implementation of Regional DNACPR policy is part of NW EoLC QIPP Project  NHS NW have agreed to adopt NW regional approach  Agreement to unify DNACPR Policy only  Adopt similar approach to South Central SHA  NWAS to act as project lead and support  NHS NW to write to Cluster Chief Executives for expressions of interest for early adopter sites.

5 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place Regional DNACPR Concept  Unified regional approach to organisation policy design.  A common decision making process for DNACPRs  A common communication and info sharing process  A common policy statement to enable validity of DNACPRs for 7 days following a change in care setting.  A single DNACPR document for all settings  Individualised roles, responsibilities, procedures and governance

6 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place Project Benefits  Supports a more integrated approach across different care settings and organisations - offering potentially seamless care and reducing the risk of inappropriate clinical decisions  Improved communication with patients and carers  Improved information sharing between organisations – more robust and timely  A potential reduction in 999 demand  A potential reduction in inappropriate admissions

8 Delivering the right care, at the right time, in the right place Timescales  Implementation of the unified NW DNACPR policy is required by the end of March 2013  Identification of pilot sites is required by the 1st February 2012  Agreement of common NW DNACPR principles and documentation by 1st April 2012  Go live with first wave of early adopters by 1st June 2012
