A session for healthcare professionals to explore how advance care planning can improve end-of-life care and person and family satisfaction with care.
At the end of the course I will be able to:
- Understand and respect a person's healthcare preferences if the person becomes unable to communicate for themselves.
- Ensure people receive care that is consistent with their beliefs, values and preferences.
- Understand how advance care planning can reduce a families' anxiety, depression and stress and cause them to be more satisfied with the care received.
- Understand how it can reduce non-beneficial transfers to acute care and unwanted interventions.
