April 2021 National Advanced Steps Virtual ACP Conference
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - April 22 @ 4:30 pm CDT
Advance care planning for individuals with serious, life-limiting illness is complex and challenging. RC Advanced Steps (AS) (formerly Last Steps) ACP incorporates the National POLST program into this stage of planning. Achieving desired outcomes of National POLST requires a thoughtful approach to implementation strategies and person-centered ACP conversations. The RC AS ACP program’s systematic approach results in a National POLST form that aligns with individual goals, values, and preferences.
Organizations interested in replicating the Advanced Steps ACP model will find it valuable to register representatives for all three days. Participants are welcome to register for any of the courses independently, based on their objectives.
