    Forrest General Hospital to offer seminars on Advance Care Planning


    Hattiesburg, Miss. (March 5, 2020) Forrest General Hospital is hosting free educational sessions to answer questions and provide information about Advance Care Planning.

    These classes will take place in the Forrest General Cafeteria Meeting Rooms. The next seminar will take place Wednesday, March 18, at 12 p.m.

    Advance Care Planning is a 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, called an advanced directive, which 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.

    The course will promote person-centered advance care planning conversations through exploration of understanding of advance care planning, past experiences and living well. Participants will learn about the three important steps involved in advance care planning and will be given resources to guide them through the process of completing an advanced directive.

    For more information about the advance care planning seminar, visit forrestgeneral.com/AdvanceCarePlanning or call (601) 288-4445.
