Griffin Hospital Offers Advanced Care Planning Facilitator Training

By Alex Stackpole on 8/15/2017

Griffin Hospital will offer a free Advance Care Planning Facilitators program this September.

The program will train individuals to help guide others in developing a plan for healthcare decisions. Advance Care Planning is a process of understanding, reflecting on, and discussing individual goals, beliefs and values in order to determine one's healthcare wishes. This vital process assures individuals that their healthcare choices will be honored in the event they are unable to speak for themselves.

The program includes an online learning component and a class on Fri., Sept. 8 from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the hospital, 130 Division St., Derby.

Registration for the program closes on Aug 28.

For more information or to register, call Lynn Aiksnoras at 203-732-1255 or email at laiksnoras@griffinhealth.org.
