Event Details

Discussing advance directives is one of the most important conversations that clinicians will ever have with their patients. It is a myth that advance directive discussions are only for the elderly. Quality advance directive discussions can benefit all patients, but particularly those in long term care or with multiple and complex illnesses. However, the discussion is often avoided because of barriers to broaching the subject. Clinicians should also be sensitive to diverse cultural values that influence patients’ decisions and feelings about this subject. When given the opportunity, many patients will choose having care provided at the right place at the right time for them. Learn about the many tools available to help facilitate these discussions with patients.
