Helping Others Navigate Their Journey’s End
Advising patients or clients about end-of-life issues is a necessary, but often difficult, part of being a medical professional or trusted advisor. According to a 2016 survey advance care planning conversations that happen after a serious illness is diagnosed or in the late stages of life is difficult for both the patient and the clinician. It also found that the need for end-of-life planning often began in discussions with attorneys and other trusted advisors.
The Center for Education & Advance Care Planning provides training and resources to help medical professionals and trusted advisors guide their patients and clients through these important discussions.
