Griffin Hospital Seeks Advance Care Planning Facilitators
Griffin Hospital is looking for volunteers to help provide patients and caregivers peace of mind about future healthcare decisions.
The hospital’s new Advance Care Planning Facilitator Program will train individuals to help guide others in developing a plan for their healthcare, in the event they are unable to speak for themselves. Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process of understanding, reflecting on, and discussing individual goals, beliefs and values in order to determine one's healthcare wishes and select a Health Care Representative to make decisions on his or her behalf.
The program includes an online learning component and a one-day class.
