Advance Care Planning Month is upon us. To mark the occasion, Dying With Dignity Canada is holding an interactive April 24 webinar featuring two highly skilled DWDC volunteers who lead workshops on planning for end of life.
These two experts will reflect on their on-the-ground experience helping people plan their wishes for care at end of life. Topics that will be covered include how to start the conversation about your wishes, the resources that exist to help you make an ACP, and the most common questions they receive at their ACP workshops.
Speakers for this April 24 event will include:
- Susan Harrison, an ACP educator and independent-witness coordinator with DWDC’s Ottawa Chapter
- Connie Jorsvik, a former RN and current independent healthcare navigator and patient advocate in B.C.
Advance Care Planning is an opportunity to think about what matters most to you and what that means for your care choices, especially at end of life. Having conversations about end of life can be challenging but it is important for you and your loved ones. Join us on April 24 to learn more about Advance Care Planning and how it can make your life better.
