HYBRID: Start Advance Care Planning

Saturday, November 4, 2023 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Join us for a presentation on Advance Care Planning by Eriko Onishi MD, from Oregon Health Sciences University.

Have you heard about Advance Care Planning (ACP)?

It's a process that helps you to prepare in advance for your future medical needs, such as when you are very hurt, or very sick, or very old, or any other time that you aren't able to fully communicate what you want or need.

Preparing for these situations beforehand through the ACP process provides you with some control over how you will be treated and cared for. It is also an invaluable gift to your loved ones, who will not have to make these important decisions for you.

Please join us to learn how the Advanced Care Planning process works.  We'll also explore both the Oregon Advance Directive and Oregon POLST (Portable Order for Life Sustaining Treatment).

Everyone is invited, from kids to older adults, because it's never too early or too late to start your Advance Care Planning!

Admission is free and no sign-up is necessary. A livestream of this presentation will also be available at https://www.youtube.com/@LakeOLib/streams
