Essentia Health to host virtual advance care planning class Sept. 9
Advanced care planning is an important step in growing up
Essentia Health will host an advance care planning class from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, Sept. 9.
Advance care planning is a process that helps individuals think and talk about their choices for health care in the future. It’s important for every adult to have an advance directive, also known as a living will or health care directive.
Everyone is invited to join in thought-provoking conversation to discover the value of ACP, reflect on values, choose a health care agent, explore goals for treatment and take steps toward completing a health care directive for themselves. By having these conversations proactively, patients can ensure their preferences are understood if they become unable to make medical decisions for themselves due to an accident, injury or sudden illness.
For the safety of all communities, all classes are currently being offered virtually. Register at https://www.essentiahealth.org/classes-events/search-results-detail/?eventId=5eeb3383-6665-eb11-a83f-000d3a611c21.
