Instructor and Facilitator Certifications

The roles of Instructors and Facilitators in advance care planning are becoming more important. ACP Instructors and Facilitators help patients make decisions for their person-centered care. These roles are critical to patients so that they are receiving the best possible healthcare. Respecting Choices® is proud to offer our ACP Facilitator and Instructor Certifications for you. You’ll learn not only how to help others make the right decisions for patients, but you’ll be able to instruct others to assume the role of Facilitator. Advance care planning Instructors are on the ground level, helping to educate patients and their families about person-centered care. There is so much involved when designing a person-centered care program, including considering the individual’s wants, needs, and preferences as well as the individual’s physical, cognitive, emotional, and social needs, the role of Instructor is crucial to training and mentoring your team.

Respecting Choices® is a leader in helping organizations and communities around the world implement and grow person-centered care programs. We believe that when individuals have a large say in their care with a collaborative team, they have the best patient experience and results. Person-centered care programs have been found to have a number of benefits for those receiving care, including increased independence, improved quality of life, and better overall health outcomes. These programs also help to reduce the burden on family members and caregivers, as well as reduce the cost of care. With our advance care planning education, we believe that the healthcare system overall will blossom and see better results for patients everywhere.
