Why Have So Few U.S. Adults Done This? How to Do Advance Care Planning: A Course for the Public.
Designed for members of the public. Despite the many benefits of completing advance care planning, only about 33% of American adults have done so. Why so few? It is totally free! Each of us must decide what medical care we want and who will speak for us if we become seriously ill or unable to communicate our wishes. We also need to write down our preferences using advance directive documents. In this course, you will learn what advance care planning is; the different types of advance directives; how to access these documents for your state; how to do advance care planning; the steps involved in completing advance directives; and what to do with them once they are completed. This course is available for $19.99.
