One Chance To Get It Right DVD

A 10 minute DVD which can be included in the palliative and end of life care training of health care workers. It uses a number of common scenarios and the consequences of differing responses. The aim is to sensitise staff to the needs of patients and their relatives/carers in the last few days of life. Ideally the DVD should be used within a group training session as it provokes discussion. The DVD can be borrowed from the Network with the proviso that Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust is acknowledged as the maker and copyright holder of the product. To borrow a copy please email with a subject title of Palliative & EoL Care Group.
