Fall 2019 National First Steps® ACP Conference
September 10 @ 8:00 am - September 12 @ 5:00 pm CDT
First Steps® (FS) Advance Care Planning (ACP) is the foundation for weaving ACP discussions into person-centered care and preventive healthcare for all adults. When integrated in the outpatient or community setting, and early during the course of healthcare, FS ACP discussions help to normalize the concept of planning, and orient individuals to the importance of regular review and update of written plans.
First Steps® ACP Design and Implementation
First Steps® ACP Facilitator Certification
First Steps® ACP Instructor Certification
Organizations interested in replicating the FS ACP model will find it valuable to send representatives to all 3 days; however, participants are welcome to attend FS ACP Facilitator Certification or Design and Implementation independently, based on their objectives.
