This NHS Education for Scotland film, which is based on the experiences of doctors, has been produced to help individuals consider the emotional impact of caring for people at the end of their life, especially if there are treatment options which may not be appropriate. It will be particularly useful for doctors in training but may also have relevance to other health and social care professionals. For more information on this video and suggestions of how it can be used e.g. in a small group teaching session please visit sad.scot.nhs.uk. Please note, this animation is not designed to be an instructional guide.
