Event date: 04/11/2013 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM Eastern time zone
Presenter is David Godfrey, Senior Attorney, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging
A shift in focus has taken place in advance health care planning from a focus on forms and paperwork, to a focus on meaningful conversations about wishes, beliefs and values. This webinar will discuss the focus on the care planning conversation and how to document the wishes using tools such as living wills, do not resuscitate orders, multi-state durable power of attorney for health care, and physicians orders for life sustaining care. This session will discuss many online handbooks and tools available to empower the advance care planning process and to guide health care decision makers.
Additional sponsorship for this Webinar is provided by a grant from the Administration on Aging/Administration for Community Living . This webinar is part of a series of National Elder Rights Training Project webinars for the National Legal Resource Center.
