Advance Care Planning Perspectives and Best Practices – a Round Table Conversation

Over the past two years, advance care planning (ACP) has been under an unusual spotlight. The Covid-19 pandemic sparked public attention about the importance of planning for unexpected illness, and healthcare practices had to change the way they conduct ACP activities in response to new care and contact requirements. Since last fall, several medical journal articles and healthcare-focused media have given rise to critical thinking about the most meaningful definition of ACP, and debate regarding its usefulness. Knowing that conversations move us forward, we believe “it’s time to talk” about ACP.

Please join us as we host a round table discussion with ACP pioneers, subject matter experts, and influencers of the future. This conversation will focus on identifying best practices in ACP and how to focus on what works, discussing how to approach ACP so it adds value to the patient and clinician experience, and what ACP programs need to include to be effective in the current healthcare environment – and into the future.
