Advance Care Planning Facilitator Training
The Respecting Choices® First Steps Facilitator Training prepares participants to assist healthy adults to choose a healthcare advocate; examine their values, wishes and goals; and document and share their preferences. Advance Care Planning (ACP) facilitation is a vital skill for end-of-life doulas, medical care providers, chaplains, social workers, and hospice administrators. Every adult should complete ACP upstream of a crisis. The Respecting Choices model is evidence-based, internationally recognized and has been developed over 25 years. Training also includes community engagement strategies, barriers to completing, storing and retrieving Advance Directives, and quality improvement.
