TRAC Training

This week, as members of TRAC at the University of South Wales, we were invited by Cwm Taff People First to take part in some filming about the DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order, where staff and members were filmed playing the roles of doctors and nurses.  During the pandemic, people with learning disabilities were given ‘do not resuscitate’ orders, in spite of widespread condemnation of the practice and an urgent investigation by the care watchdog.  Mencap received reports from people with learning disabilities that they had been told they would not be resuscitated if they were taken ill with Covid19.  Although this is very difficult subject to have to deal with, the process also included some fun moments as we united to express our views and feelings.​
