These are challenging times filled with a great deal of uncertainty. However, even during a pandemic, you have the power to voice your own choices about your care. With the expertise of Connie Jorsvik, National Advance Care Planning Coordinator; Valerie Cooper MN, NP-Adult, CHPCN(C) Nurse Practitioner, Hospice Palliative Care Program South East Local Health Integration Network, Kingston; and Maureen Aslin, Education Manager, Dying With Dignity Canada has created the COVID-19 ACP Toolkit to help you take action now.
This webinar, Advance Care Planning & COVID-19: Voicing Your Choice in Uncertain Times, will feature the authors of the toolkit, and will give you the information you need to help make your wishes known to your loved ones, including choosing a Substitute Decision Maker and preparing your Advance Directive. We hope this webinar and resource will bring you peace of mind, whether you should need these documents now or later. The best time to empower yourself to make healthcare decisions is now, and we can help you take the first step.
