Types of training
Our training for the NHS includes Think Tanks, Digital Drop in Sessions and raising awareness within NHS professionals as to the importance patients assign to their digital assets and digital legacy. The core focus of many of our workshops is to install confidence in professionals to ensure that they feel comfortable when discussing end of life in relation to the internet and they have enough information and resources in order for this to be delivered clearly. We have also many hospice NHS staff. Our recent training sessions for NHS England include:
- NHS Wandsworth CCG – Digital Drop In Session for Professionals (further information)
- NHS Haringey CCD – Let’s talk about Dying at Tottenham Town Hall (further information)
- Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust – Royal Free Hospital Patient Safety Training
- NHS Blood and Transplant – London Organ Donation Collaborative training.

The aim of ‘TalkCPR’ is to improve communication and dialogue between patients and their healthcare professionals with regard to Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Orders (DNACPR). In order to allow this difficult area to be communicated a website and a number of videos were created.

TalkCPR is used by the general public to ensure that they make the most informed decisions about CPR and DNACRP. It is also used by healthcare professionals as a tool to improve their confidence in talking about CPR and discussing DNACPT with their patients.

The Digital Legacy Association have provided regular support and consultancy over the last six months or so for the campaign. We also built and designed the Talk CPR websites ensuring that the content was available in both English and Welsh. TalkCPR won an NHS Wales Award for the Improving Quality Using Improving Quality Together (IQT) Methodology
