In 2009 the Resuscitation Council (UK) published model forms and guidance notes for recording DNACPR decisions. Following the publication of joint guidance ‘Decisions Relating to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation’ from the British Medical Association, Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Royal College of Nursing in October 2014, these forms and guidance notes have been revised to help healthcare workers and organisations to achieve uniformly high standards in recording and communicating decisions about CPR.
