East of England DNACPR Policy 2015
Kennedys Law and the Suffolk CCGs provided two Mental Capacity training (Level 3 Safeguarding) in May 2017 for GPs and consultants.
Feedback Summary for the GP/Consultant Mental Capacity Act Training Events Commissioned By the Suffolk CCGs
39 delegates attended the training across Ipswich and East Suffolk and West Suffolk. Within the feedback received from 10 attendees, 100% recorded the overall events were useful and 85% felt the events had increased their individual confidence in dealing with this subject, which was supported by the facilitators’ good knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act. 100% advised the Events offered a relevant balance of information, discussion and application to the workplace and the methods and materials used reinforced and enabled learning which would enhance their continuing practice.
Feedback highlighted that participants would have liked to have had more time to look at additional scenarios followed by time for in depth discussions. In addition, they felt a longer session would have allowed more time to address points of uncertainty.
In general, participants advised they had enjoyed the afternoon training sessions and had benefited from very useful discussion about management of community DNACPRs. One participant wrote “Good speakers/use of case studies made a potentially dry subject interesting“. Several participants observed that the turnout overall was disappointing for a subject that is important for all doctors. 100% participants advised they would recommend this training to colleagues.
