Virtual Wellness Wednesday – Advance Care Planning – Presented by WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital
Date(s) - 04/07/2021; 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Advance Care Planning is not just about old age. At any age, an accident or a medical crisis could leave you too ill to make your own health care decisions. Even if you are not sick now, making health care plans for the future is an important step toward making sure you get the medical care you would want, even when doctors and family members are making the decisions for you.
Horizon Planning®, WellSpan’s name for Advance Care Planning, involves learning about the types of decisions that might need to be made, considering those decisions ahead of time, and then letting others know about your wishes. Presenter Roberta Geidner is the Manager for Horizon® /Advance Care Planning for WellSpan® Health and is leading the health system’s strategic initiative to improve the process for engaging all patients (pediatrics through seniors) in advance care planning so their wishes can be honored at the end of their life, whenever that should happen.Add to Outlook Calendar | Add to Google Calendar
