Ethics and Issues in Advance Care Planning: ACP and Developmental Disability
HCV envisions a world where all Virginians have access to quality advance care planning that is honored in the delivery of care. Misconceptions abound about the role of ACP, including a common conflation of ACP with end-of-life planning. What does ACP mean in the context of dementia, mental illness, or birth? What can we learn about person-centered care from those who have long been in the fight for it?
- Learn the history and importance of person-centered care to the developmental disability field and community
- Examine the role, definition, and significance of advance care planning to the developmental disability field and community
- Gain familiarity with diverse perspectives from the developmental disability field and community concerning advance care planning and person-centered care
- Exposure to information and tools to support advance care planning practice in the context of the developmental disability field and community
