Advance Care Planning: Challenges and Opportunities

Dr. Daren Heyland participated in a virtual workshop with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine on October 26th. The workshop focused on Advance Care Planning: Challenges and Opportunities and was hosted by the Roundtable on Quality Care for People with Serious Illness. It also provided a venue to explore the challenges and opportunities of advance care planning, acknowledging and highlighting divergent viewpoints, and examining what is empirically known and not known about advance care planning and its outcomes. Areas where more data and research are needed to fill evidentiary gaps, as well as identify potential approaches to improve the practice of advance care planning (ACP) were also explored during the online session.
