Stanford Palliative Care is proud to provide quarterly 2-Part, FREE Advance Health Care Planning virtual workshops for the public. 

"Advance care planning" is the term to describe the conversations and processes involved in making what is more commonly known as a "living will" or "advance health care directive."  In this workshop format, we'll talk about what's right for you and those close to you.  Whether you are a person living with a serious illness, a caregiver of a loved one, or the healthiest you have ever been, having some form of a care plan in the event you are unable to speak for yourself, is important for providing you and your family with the comfort and confidence knowing that your wishes will be honored no matter what happens. 

Come learn about the questions you should be asking yourself, your doctors, and your loved ones.  You may even leave with an advance care plan completed.

Part I:  We will define and describe advance health care planning and provide a 4-step plan to help you get jump-started on thinking about the questions you should be considering. Register hereRegistration for Part I closes on 10/5

Part II: We will review an advance directive and provide time for discussion and questions.  Part II is open only to registrants of Part I.
