First Steps® ACP Certification Course – Sponsored by MaineHealth

June 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm EDT

This course is being offered in Portland, Maine.

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.
