Respecting Choices

Respecting Choices is an internationally recognized, evidence-based model of advance care planning (ACP) that creates a health care culture of person-centered care, honoring an individual's goals and values for current and future health care. They believe that this requires a shared decision-making process that involves respectful interaction among providers, individuals, and families — keeping the focus of health care planning on what matters most to each person.

CAPC has partnered with Respecting Choices to build person-centered advance care planning (ACP) skills for physicians and advanced practitioners. The three online courses, authored by Respecting Choices, assist physicians in identifying practical steps to integrate ACP into their everyday practice, especially for their patients who have not started the planning process.
