We’re excited to connect you with Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest as another resource for advance care planning materials and information.
According to the Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest website,“Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest is a joint initiative between the Washington State Hospital Association and Washington State Medical Association.
We inspire conversations about the care people want at the end of life. This comprehensive initiative uses a variety of approaches, such as an advance care planning program, community engagement, physician education, advocacy, and a central repository. We help the public make informed choices about end-of-life care.”
There’s a section especially for healthcare professionals that has videos about listening, empathy, and advance care planning for older homeless-experienced adults. There’s also a great FAQ page that answers the questions that come up most frequently. Check out this great resource at https://www.honoringchoicespnw.org/.
You’ll find more information about advance care planning and how to have those tough conversations at theheartofhospice.com. And remember - You are The Heart of Hospice!
