Awards success for Byw Nawr and partners
Baroness Dr Ilora Finlay, said “The award for TalkCPR recognises how this innovative approach is making a difference in a vital area of care that potentially affects us all. Talking about cardiac arrest and death is difficult; the TalkCPR website helps people understand the issues involved in deciding whether they want Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) attempted and the importance of high standards of care whether or not a ‘do not attempt CPR’ (DNACPR) decision has been addressed. This award is very well deserved and recognises this high quality innovative work.”
James Norris from the Digital Legacy Association, said “TalkCPR has been a great awareness campaign and the Digital Legacy Association are proud to be part of the TalkCPR team. CPR and DNACPR are very difficult subject matters for professionals and the general public to address. The goal of TalkCPR is to help break down barriers and make CPR and DNACPR easier subject matters to learn about, discuss and address. We delighted to have won the NHS Wales Award for the Improving Quality using IQT Methodology category.”
Dr Mark Taubert worked on the site, and he says “"Only last week, a patient in hospital who had looked at the http://talkcpr.wales website, told me that she now understood the issues so much more, and that it helped her frame her own decisions and discussions about her wishes. Such feedback is the best prize of them all, because it shows a real change. I hope the website can empower patients and their loved-ones to really turn the table on these anticipatory healthcare discussions."
