When the Do Not Resuscitate Confirmation Form (DNRC) was introduced across the province of Ontario in February 2008, it became apparent that many health care providers were unfamiliar with their obligations under the Health Care Consent Act, 1996 when discussing choices around Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with patients.
This series of e-learning modules was designed to be part of a blended learning strategy. Modules 1 through 6 are designed to assist health care providers to:
- Understand the difference between Advance Care Planning (ACP) and Informed Consent for health care decision making as described in the Ontario Health Care Consent Act.
- Understand the elements of informed consent and how to apply them to discussions about Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
- Understand the use of the algorithm as a tool to help guide the process for informed decision making.
- Gain the knowledge and skills to enhance discussions including the process for conflict resolution.
Module 7 is intended to assist members of the public to:
- Understand the purpose of Advance Care Planning (ACP) which includes the role of the Substitute Decision Maker as reflected in the Health Care Consent Act of Ontario.
- Understand the elements of consent in order to make an informed decision related to health care in various setting in the health care system.
Learners may participate in the learning independently by clicking on the link. Each module takes about 20-25 minutes to complete.
