I work in a small country town with a close knit community. After a recent incident I wonder if anyone has suggestions on how to discuss end of life plans with clients and families and how to indicate clearly on their file if they have a DNR?

Hi Alison,
in my experience the DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) is usually stated in the “Resident’s Profile” which is filled in by the resident or his/her family on arrival. It may also contain other plans for the end of life such as preferred Funeral Company, religious rites, ACP (Advance care Planning), and other related issues.
