Title: Recognizing and honoring your patients’ wishes when they matter MOST.
Date/Time: , 9:00-1:00 EST
Description: Having a conversation with your patients about their medical treatments especially at end of life is important in order that their wishes to be respected. Nine out of ten people say they should have a conversation surrounding their end of life wishes, but only three out of ten people actually have this conversation with their loved one. More than half those who interviewed wish they had a conversation with their loved one before they were unable to speak for themselves about their advance care planning wishes. Of those that had this conversation sixty three percent felt their loved ones would have had a more positive experience and thirty nine percent felt they were able to honor their loved ones end of life wishes at the time of death. The Advance Care Planning Symposium will help you understand the different forms of advance care planning documents, how to choose which document is appropriate for your patients, and how to have a conversation with you patients to help them make their wishes known to their loved ones, and identify who they wish to make decisions for them when they are no longer capable of making healthcare decisions for themselves.
