A lack of knowledge about preferences for health care can result in confusion and conflict between family members and health professionals at a critical time.
Hospice PEI offers an education program to assist the public and health care workers in the preparation of an Advance Care Plan. Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication about personal care preferences in the event that you become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment or critical care.
The ‘Speak Up’ education program includes tools to help people start these sometimes difficult conversations. Advance Care Planning resources such as workbooks, wallet cards and links to provincial legislation and planning information are available.
One of the most important aspects of advance care planning is naming and having a conversation with a Substitute Decision Maker – someone who will speak on your behalf and make decisions for you but only when you are not able to do so yourself.
Individuals and groups interested in an Advance Care Planning presentation please contact the Hospice PEI office at 902-368-4498 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
