Griffin Hospital Offers Advanced Care Planning Facilitator Training
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.
