Successful advance care planning (ACP) programs develop strategies to help people make informed healthcare decisions, with processes in place to insure these decisions are followed. Advance care planning involves much more than the completion of an advance directive. Successful programs require a systems approach.
You will learn from the experts, authors Bernard (Bud) Hammes and Linda Briggs, about the key principles in developing an ACP microsystem. Other topics include the value of standardized training for ACP facilitators, strategies for community engagement, and the role of ongoing quality improvement to sustain an ACP initiative.
A well-designed ACP program will foster a culture of healthcare decision making that is person-centered and satisfying to patients, families, healthcare providers, and organizational leaders. Respecting Choices is the approach to accomplish the goal.
