Respect - recommended summary plan for emergency care and treatment - info for nursing/residential care home staff (A4 factsheet)
ReSPECT (Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment) is a process that creates personalised recommendations for a person’s immediate clinical care in a future emergency in which they cannot make or express choice. It provides a summary plan with recommendations to help health and care professionals to make immediate decisions about that person’s care and treatment.
The importance of having conversations to understand and record a person's wishes has never been more important than during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Those using the Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment (Respect) must ensure that having conversations with the individuals concerned remains at the heart of the process.
This leaflet has been created to help someone have a conversation with a health or social care professional.
