Cardiopulmonary resuscitation decisions - integrated adult policy: guidance

Updated guidance on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) policy reflecting feedback and changes to national good practice.

The Decision-Making Framework

The NHSScotland decision-making Framework is adapted from the Decision-making Framework in the guidance from the BMA, RC ( UK) and the RCN (2016) and should be followed to enable you to make a decision about cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A shortened guidance note is available on the second page of the Framework, however the Framework (viewable in Appendix II) should be viewed with the additional information provided in Annex A of this policy.
