Take part in DNACPR survey at the University of Essex

A survey of care professionals aims to shed further light on Care Quality Commission concerns that Do Not Attempt CPR (DNACPR) orders have breached the human rights of care home residents.

The survey of care home professionals, led by the University of Essex, closes on Sunday 4 April. It asks respondents questions relating to restrictions on movement and visits, access to services, the use of DNACPR orders, and the usefulness of guidance for practice.

Senior researcher Dr Margot Kuylen said: “This survey will help us understand better what has been happening on the frontline, and will provide some quantitative data to supplement the many anecdotal accounts that have appeared in the media.”

The DNACPR survey is part of an Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project, Human Rights in Care Homes, led by Professor Wayne Martin.

The survey will be followed by a series of focus groups with selected care professionals. Its findings will be used to develop a training curriculum for frontline care workers. Results will be published before the summer.

The Human Rights in Care Homes project is part of the Essex Autonomy Project which explores the challenges associated with frontline practice in medicine, psychiatry, social work and law, and develops strategies to ensure respect for autonomy and human rights in care contexts.

Complete the DNACPR survey.
