Advance care planning (ACP) is “… a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes and to let people know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future…” (Advance Care Planning Canada).

A panel of experts will share research, policy and clinical practice knowledge. How is it possible to approach life end-of life issues in culturally sensitive ways? Which ACP tools could be used in long-term care settings?

Event held on National Advance Care Planning Day 2019
