Module 13 – Advance Care Planning

Advance care planning is the process of planning for future medical care, particularly in the event that the patient is unable to make his or her own decisions. It is helpful to think of the process as a stepwise approach. The process fosters personal resolution for the patient, preparedness for the proxy, and effective teamwork for the professionals. The process also has pitfalls to be avoided.
