NASEM Advance Care Planning: Challenges and Opportunities: First Webinar

October 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The virtual public workshop will provide a venue to explore the challenges and opportunities of advance care planning, acknowledge and highlight divergent viewpoints, and examine what is empirically known and not known about advance care planning and its outcomes. The workshop will identify areas where more data and research are needed to fill evidentiary gaps, as well as identify potential approaches to improve the practice of advance care planning (ACP).

The workshop will be held over two webinars on October 26, 2020 and November 2, 2020.
