Spring 2019 National Advanced Steps ACP Conference
May 7 @ 12:30 pm - May 9 @ 5:00 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 nationally recognized Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) Paradigm program into this stage of planning. Achieving desired outcomes of the POLST program requires a thoughtful approach to implementation strategies and person-centered ACP conversations. The RC AS ACP program’s systematic approach results in an effective and sustainable POLST program.
- Advanced Steps ACP Design and Implementation

Organizations interested in replicating the AS ACP model will find it valuable to send representatives to all 3 days; however, participants are welcome to attend AS ACP Certification or Design and Implementation independently, based on their objectives.
