Advance care planning is a juggling processAt our recent POLST training in San Diego, a participant compared the process of advance care planning to a juggling act!
I agree.

Advance Care Planning is not a “one and done” process… It is an ongoing conversation between a person, their loved ones and a healthcare provider as life milestones and health conditions change over a period of time.

ACP is more complex than a series of check boxes on a form. That’s why we started a conference call community where you can be inspired by successful ACP efforts and share ideas about what is working to improve conversations and processes in both healthcare and community settings.

It’s your time to shine!

The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California hosts these calls, and we want you to be involved in the discussion! During the call, you can:

  • Participate in discussions through your phone
  • Answer real time web polls
  • Engage in the chat box from your computer
