RE: Training Bulletin, Issue Number 108 – version 1.0
Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Standard
I am pleased to present Training Bulletin, Issue Number 108 – version 1.0. This Training
Bulletin has been developed to provide an opportunity for paramedics to review the key
points from the updated DNR Standard. This Standard will replace the existing DNR
Standard, as found in the Basic Life Support Patient Care Standards version 2.0. The
updated DNR Standard will be implemented on February 1, 2008.
A new Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Confirmation Form is an integral part of the application of
the updated DNR Standard. This Form will direct the practice of paramedics and firefighters
after February 1, 2008 in situations where a DNR order is part of a patient’s treatment plan.
Fire Departments will be developing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that incorporate
the use of the DNR Confirmation for firefighters. These SOPs will be similar to the DNR
Standard for paramedics.
This Training Bulletin includes information on the changes to the DNR Standard and Form, a
comprehensive list of Questions and Answers as well as Case Studies that paramedics can
review to test their knowledge of the Standard and its application. Sufficient copies of this
Training Bulletin will be printed by the Branch so that you can provide every paramedic in
your service with a copy in advance of the February 1, 2008 implementation of the revised
DNR Standard.
In the future, a CD-Rom will be released as a continuing education initiative to further
enhance use of the revised Standard.
