Event Description

Advance Care Planning (ACP) has never been more important than now. Our recent experience with COVID-19 lays bare ACP gaps and barriers that persist despite many years of promotion of ACP through public and clinical education.

Federal and state regulators have implemented ACP waivers to address some of these concerns, but these waivers are temporary. We will evaluate these temporary waivers and determine where there are remaining gaps and barriers. Please join (virtually) our panel of leading experts as we examine lessons learned from this experience and identify longer-term policy solutions that support quality ACP services for all.
