Abstract

Advance Care Planning (ACP) has become more accepted in the United States and the stigma of completing an Advance Directive (AD) is also decreasing. Therefore, making proactive healthcare conversations a focus in care plans increasingly individualizes patient centered care. As a result, with COVID-19 and the vulnerability of some populations, professionals are finding it more crucial than ever to have client wishes known. As new professionals and students emerge in the healthcare world it is vital that they encompass the ability to identify, assess and engage targeted populations in the ACP conversation. In addition, developing the skills to help clients understand and navigate ACP education in a proactive manner will aide in shifting healthcare to a person-centered care model. This innovative workshop will help students and professionals clarify terminology, identify target populations, understand GA law and how that applies to an ACP conversation and develop skills to assist the client in identifying three key decisions before completing the Advance Directive document.
