What Matters Most: An Introduction to Advance Care Planning

Advance care planning is the process of sharing and documenting a person’s preferences for medical treatment if they were unable to speak for themselves. Despite most people recognizing the importance of these conversations, only about a third of Americans have had them. This short presentation will give you the tools to share what matters most to those in your life.
