About the Event

Join us at this virtual event to learn about advance directives and how to plan for your medical care if you cannot represent yourself.

Please don't get caught unprepared by a medical emergency, as many people experienced a couple of years ago with COVID-19. Instead, take the time to gain control over the type of healthcare you want if you cannot speak for yourself.

Medical emergencies can hit anyone's life anytime, anywhere, and at any age.

Having a completed advance directive is essential to having your choices honored.

  • It records your healthcare preferences and life-sustaining choices.
  • It informs your doctors about your treatment wishes.
  • It reduces the burden from those you love, having to guess the medical care you want if you cannot speak for yourself.

Planning for your care in advance contributes to the quality of care you receive during your illness.

Learning Objectives:

  • What is Advance Care Planning and Why is it important?
  • What is a MOLST / POLST?
  • Why don't we plan?
  • How to choose a health care agent and what are their responsibilities
  • What is an Advance Directive?
  • How to begin the planning conversation.

Making medical decisions during medical emergencies increases the stress around the crisis.
