144186 - The Advance Project for GPs: Initiating Advance Care Planning and Palliative Care

  • : Online

 

This online GP module aims to: 1) Explore the role of GP and general practice in Advance Care Planning (ACP) and palliative care (PC) 2) Explain how evidence-based tools can be used to initiate ACP and assess patients and carers' palliative/supportive care needs; 3) Describe how specialist PC services can support general practice in this role; 4) Describe how to initiate ACP discussions and assess PC needs using the Advance Guide.

Relevance to General Practice

It is imperative that GPs are equipped to assist patients with ACP and to receive guidance and education about which patients would benefit most from referral to specialist PC services, to promote the best use of limited specialist resources. This will also facilitate earlier referral to specialist PC for people who need it before they reach a crisis point. The Advance Project GP module will equip GPs to use the Advance Project Guide and evidence based tools to initiate advance care planning and assessing patients and carers’ palliative and supportive care needs.
