Advance care planning is an organized process of communication to help individuals understand, reflect upon, and discuss goals for future healthcare decisions in the context of their values and beliefs. When this process is done well, it has the power to produce a written plan (advanced directive) that accurately represents the individual’s preferences and thoroughly prepares others to make healthcare decisions consistent with these preferences. Advance care planning is appropriate for any adult.
These sessions will focus on person-centered advance care planning conversations through exploration of understanding of advance care planning, past experiences and living well.
You will learn about the three important steps involved in First Steps advance care planning, and be provided with resources to help yourself or others while completing the advance care planning process, including drafting an advanced directive.
This meeting will be held in the Hickory Room in Forrest General's Cafeteria.
