Advanced Care Planning (ACP)

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Date & Time: Apr 16th, 2024 | 12:00-1:30pm EDT

➡️Register for this workshop here!


When we think about planning for our future, we often focus on our careers, education, finances, retirement…and we sometimes forget that we also need to have conversations about Advance Care Planning: what are your wishes and values that influence the kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself. In this workshop we will:

· review health care consent in Ontario;

· understand the role of and identify your Substitute Decision Maker(s);

· explore your wishes, values and beliefs about health and personal care;

· offer tips for having ACP conversations with the people who are important to you; and,

· share resources to support you in your planning.


This is a workshop, therefore we heavily encourage you to turn your cameras and mics on and be a part of the discussion!
