Why Advance Care Planning?

A process to think about, talk and plan for end-of-life care. Brown Bag Workshop sponsored by the Professional Development Committee with Kathy Wieliczko, MSW, Speare Memorial Hospital and Kathie Stringham, Patient Support Specialist for Central NH Health Partnership, Mid-State Health Center

Making decisions about medical health care is not always easy—especially now that machines can keep patients alive even when there is no hope for recovery. It’s your right to participate in and plan for your care because at some point, you may become unable to make your own health care decisions. That’s why it’s important to think and talk about your feelings and beliefs with your loved ones long before critical decisions must be made.

Our guests will provide information and a copy of the Advance Care Planning Guide created by the State of NH. This document has all the information you will need to create the legal documents that state your preferences about medical care. There will be time for questions and discussion. Please join us on Thursday Oct. 11, at 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., HUB Student Senate Room #119. Feel free to bring your lunch!
