Webinar: Advance Directives and Advance Care Planning

April 10, 2024

About this Webinar for Physicians and Healthcare Professionals

Talking with patients about their goals and preferences for medical care reduces aggressive interventions near the end of life, increases hospice enrollment, improves care satisfaction, and increases the likelihood that patients will die in the setting they prefer, according to studies.

This webinar explores the history, application, and types of advance directives, and provides practical advice for engaging in difficult-but-necessary conversations with patients and families/caregivers.

This webinar is offered for both CE and CME credit:

  • CE credit is available to nurses (RN, LPN, LVN; in California, Registered Nurses only), social workers and certified case managers, as well as licensed nursing home administrators in the states of Florida and Illinois.
  • CME credit is available to physicians (MD, DO), nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistants (PA).

Attendees can earn one continuing education hour. See below for full certification information and instructions.
