Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment (ReSPECT)
Promoting open and honest discussions about your care is the duty of every healthcare professional.
The Recommended Summary Plan for Emergency Care and Treatment (ReSPECT) document helps guide you and your clinician through this process.
It gives you and your families an option to talk through ongoing treatment options which you may benefit from or not.
The ReSPECT document is not legally binding and is used as guidance in an emergency situation.
Below you will find a list of resources from the Resuscitation Council website to help understand the process.
