Advance Care Planning (ACP) has emerged as an important component of quality healthcare discussions, shared decision making, and satisfaction related to end-of-life care. However, ACP is not a one-size-fits-all concept. The level of facilitation a patient and family need and deserve is dependent on the patient's diagnosis, prognosis, state of illness, and personal goals and values.
Respecting Choices has developed a unique and effective approach to planning for patients with advanced illness and their families called Next Steps. Next Steps is an evidence-based, disease specific advance care planning (DSACP) intervention proven to be a valuable service to complement disease management coordination. It is a proactive and timely planning opportunity offered to patients with advanced illness as they begin to experience complications, functional, or other triggers of decline.
In this on-demand Webinar, the speakers will explore the history and development of the DSACP program with research and quality improvement outcomes. They will describe the elements of this in-depth planning discussion and facilitator training components, and will share their lessons and strategies for successful clinical implementation of the Next Steps program.
