Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let people know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself.
It means having discussions with family and friends, especially your Substitute Decision Maker – the person who will speak for you if you cannot speak for yourself. It may also include writing down your wishes, and talking with healthcare providers and financial or legal professionals.
This seminar will provide you with pertinent information on Advance Care Planning as well as the following subject matters:
· Ethics behind advance care planning · Health care proxy · Surrogate decision making · Process of public guardianship and trustee.
