Description

Learn more about advanced care planning. The kind of care you would want if you became seriously ill or injured or unable to speak for yourself.

“Advance care planning is not simply filling out an advance care directive, it involves talking to patients and their chosen decision-makers, and making sure their goals, values and beliefs become known through a very rich discussion. We then need to ensure these discussions are accurately recorded in the medical record, and that these wishes are followed,” says Dr. Jonathan Sande, an oncologist/hematologist at the Essentia Health Cancer Center in Duluth and the director of Advance Care Planning.

What if a sudden illness or injury left you unable to speak for yourself?  Who would you want to speak for you?  What would you want them to know about your values and wishes? 

Join us for a though-provoking conversation to help make your wishes known. 

Learn vocabulary, reflect on your values, choose a healthcare agent, explore goals for treatment and take steps toward completing a healthcare directive.
