    Talking About What Matters Most:  The Importance of Advance Care Planning


    Tuesday, Oct 2


    2:00pm - 2:50pm
    Having conversations with people about their end-of-life care options and choices is one of the most important functions of healthcare, and yet one of the most challenging to formally implement in a healthcare setting. Advance care planning can be a powerful tool that affects engagement, satisfaction, and outcomes - and is most effective when delivered through a program approach. In this session, you will learn about the benefits that compassionate advance care planning creates for healthcare professionals, systems, and the people you serve. You will learn about the key components of a successful advance care planning program, and steps to get started.
