Summary & Scheduling

Stories from patients and families describing how they reached their ACP decisions, how satisfied they are with these decisions, and why they feel that way (3 hours).

Learning Content

Attitude: Participants are encouraged to collaborate to identify values, goals, and preferences early, as well as throughout the disease trajectory, to facilitate care concordant with patients’ preferences to maintain their quality of life.
Knowledge: Participants will have improved knowledge of how:
• PD-related life changes impact daily life activities and affect future planning, including advance care
• Support and advice should be provided for life changes within a structured decision-making process
• Important the personalization of the provided information and support (no ‘one-size-fits-all’ models) is for patients and their caregivers
Skills: Enable patients and their caregivers to make informed decisions in collaboration with their formal healthcare providers.
