Advance Care Planning: Hands-On Workshop with Honoring Choices
Advance Care Planning is not merely the completion of a health care directive. Instead, it is a thoughtful process, ideally utilizing a certified Advance Care Planning Facilitator who has been trained to engage patients in discussions with loved ones about their desires and values for future health care treatment decisions. The result of these conversations is usually a written document known as a health care directive.
As a follow up to our November Forum on Advance Care Planning, this workshop will provide 2-hours of hands-on assistance, led by a Honoring Choices trained facilitator, where you will work through the concepts, questions and concerns that need to be addressed when preparing your own Advance Care Directive. Facilitators will be able to answer questions regarding the difference between a Health Care Directive, a POLST and other related documents, as well as walk you through the process – at the end of this session you’ll leave having prepared your own Advance Care documents.
SHIFT Members: $15.00
SEATING IS LIMITED FOR THIS HANDS-ON EVENT.
