What is advance care planning (ACP)? It’s the act of developing a care plan for when an individual cannot fully participate in making decisions regarding their own care.
For years, ACP for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) has lagged behind the general population. As the number of individuals with IDD rapidly grows, advance care planning has become a best practice.
Watch this on-demand webinar to hear Dr. Christina N. Marsack-Topolewski, LMSW, discuss the importance of advance care planning for individuals with IDD, including support strategies.
In this webinar, you’ll learn the following:
Benefits of advance care planning for individuals with IDD
What to consider when planning for an individual’s long-term needs
Frequently used terminology in advance care planning
Common barriers to implementing advance care plans
Why now is the optimal time to ensure primary-care plans for individuals with IDD also include dimensions of advance care planning
