'Time to talk, Doc?'- GP Film for Dementia
The Dying Matters Coalition aims to boost GPs’ confidence in initiating and undertaking end of life conversations.
This film evolved from a series of GP confidence raising workshops held since 2011 where GPs revealed particular concern at initiating these conversations with people affected by dementia, especially when these conversations may need to take place shortly after diagnosis due to issues of capacity. Following on from the training we found that when conversations were initiated by the GP, 9 out of 10 patients chose to continue them.
