I’m Lorie from the General Medical Council. My role is to help medical students and doctors understand how our guidance is applied in practice and how to deal with the ethical challenges you will face throughout your career. End of life care is likely to be one of the most challenging areas of your training.
That’s why this year, we’re running an end of life care campaign to help doctors and medical students tackle the emotional and ethical complexities of caring for patients who are expected to die in the next 12 months.
As part of this, we want to know how prepared you feel for the sensitive issue of dealing with patients who are approaching the end of their lives. We have created a quick survey for you to complete. This isn’t a formal consultation, but it’s a chance to tell us how you feel about this area of your education, and for us to identify where there may be chance to help with this.
Your response will help us to continue to make sure you get the best possible training for your future careers, so please take a few minutes to complete this short survey. The survey is now open until 9am Monday 2 May and you can find the survey here. If you have any questions about our work or guidance on end of life care, please do let me know.
Do you feel prepared to deliver end of life care?
