The Power of Knowing

Advance Care Planning – How to Share
What Gives Your Life Meaning

Thursday, April 11 | Noon to 1 p.m.

Understanding comes from knowing and Advance Care Planning is something that many have heard about, but
few have done. This webinar will explain what Advance Care Planning is, why it is important for everyone,
especially when we are well. Palliative Care also will be explained and the role it has in helping those with serious
illness make decisions and have difficult conversations to be sure each person’s wishes are followed for their care.

Learning Objectives

• Understand what Advance Care Planning is and why it is important for all of us.
• Understand how to share your wishes by completing available documents.
• Understand what Palliative Care is and how it can help in making difficult health care decisions and in having difficult conversations.
