Bookings are now open for ACT’s Train to Care Study Days: Extubation as an end of life choice for the life-limited or life-threatened child: an introduction to ACT’s care pathway approach.

 

ACT is holding two study days:

Manchester – 20 September 2011

London – 15 November 2011

 

 

Both sessions will be delivered by:

 

Dr Chris Kidson, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist, Royal Hospital for Sick Children (Yorkhill) Glasgow and Katrina McNamara-Goodger, Head of Policy and Practice, ACT.

 

Individual rate:          £130 per delegate

Multiple places rate: £120 per delegate (if your organisation books more than one place)

 

This ACT study day aims to:

·         To introduce delegates to ACT’s care pathway approach to supporting the withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment within a children’s palliative care framework.

·         To provide delegates with practical information and tools to support them to explore the clinical process of extubation within a wide range of environments, including critical care settings, children’s hospices and in the child’s home.

·         To provide a forum to discuss the moral, ethical and legal challenges professionals may face when working with children and young people who are at their end of life. We will explore the complexities and dilemmas in supporting family members and young people to understand critical care choices, and explore the decision-making process surrounding the withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment.
