Respecting Choices® First Steps is a comprehensive Advance Care Planning Course…
The Coalition for Quality End of Life Care, a Fort Worth non-profit devoted to education around end of life care and Advance Care planning, will be offering the same method first pioneered in Gunderson, Wisconsin where more than 90% of the community has developed an Advance Care Plan. Respecting Choices® First Steps is a comprehensive Advance Care Planning Course…
The course has two parts. Part I is an on-line Advance Care Planning course with six modules.
Part II is a live one-day classroom experience. You must complete both parts and the required work to become certified as a First Steps Advance Care Planning Facilitator. THE LIVE CLASS ROOM portion is scheduled for Aug 28th At the James L West Center, 1111 Summit, Fort Worth, TX
When you register for this course, you will be sent a letter providing complete instructions for accessing the on-line modules and requirements for attending Part II (classroom course) on the date you select. At the completion of the six on-line modules, you will be able to print a certificate of completion.
This certificate is a pre-requisite to attend Part II and must be presented to the classroom Instructor. The letter will also describe the additional exercises you will be asked to complete as you take the on-line course, to include completing a written advance directive that will be sent to you and engaging in an advance care planning discussion with someone close to you.
Please register at least one month before attending Part II so you have enough time to complete the on-line modules. Each module takes one to two hours to complete, including time to read the on-line text. You may start and stop at any point as you complete each module. These six on-line modules are approved for 9.4 contact hours for nurses and social workers.
