Presented by: Dr. Paul Bradford, (Local Medical Director), Peter Morassutti (Regional Paramedic Educator), and Justin Lammers (Advanced Care Paramedic)
Have you ever been unsure about whether the DNR presented to you was valid or not? Or how about what types of treatment you should administer to a patient who does present a valid DNR? These can be tricky questions to answer, but thankfully, we’re going to do just that! Please join us for an interactive Webinar presentation on what a DNR is, how it should be applied, and what treatment plans can be implemented and at what time.
Paramedics of all levels will benefit from joining this paramedic rounds, as you will be able to:
- Explain what a DNR is, it’s rational, and how it relates to paramedic practice,
- Discuss the meaning and implications of the DNR Confirmation Form,
- Describe treatments and procedures that can and cannot be performed on a patient who has a valid DNR,
- Describe how a valid DNR might alter paramedic practice in a variety of patient care scenarios
