Over the last two years I have helped with the development a toolkit by the Velindre Cancer Centre called TalkCPR. The aim of the project TalkCPR’ is to ease communication and dialogue between patients with palliative illnesses and their healthcare professionals in relation to the complex area of Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Decisions (DNACPR). In order to facilitate effective communication and transfer good quality knowledge to patients and those close to them, a novel video and website approach was used .

TalkCPR won an NHS Wales Award within the ‘Improving Quality Together (IQT) Methodology’ category.
