Kate Debartolo of The Conversation Project is talking with us about advance care planning, and how to talk about what matters most to you. According to The Conversation Project website (, Kate “has worked at The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) since 2007. She currently leads The Conversation Project team and operations. Additionally, Kate manages and cultivates relationships with national and state-level organizations that help engage the general public in advance care planning.” Individuals can find the Conversation Starter Guide and use it to have discussions with their families.  The Conversation Project also has resources for choosing a healthcare proxy, being a healthcare proxy, and what to consider if you’re dealing with a serious illness.  The TCP resources come in multiple languages and forms, easily accessed and edited. All the resources and workbooks are available at no charge. Take advantage of all the free guides The Conversation Project has to offer!
