What You’ll Learn

Authored by Respecting Choices®, this three-module online curriculum is intended for physicians and advanced practitioners to build person-centered advance care planning (ACP) skills. While courses use the POLST framework and provide continuing education for physicians and advanced practitioners only, course content may be useful for health professionals from all disciplines. The courses assist clinicians in identifying practical steps to integrate ACP into their everyday practice, especially for their patients who have not started the planning process.

Each course builds incrementally toward this goal. The first two courses provide foundational skills to introduce ACP, motivate patients to participate, as well as conduct and document these essential conversations. The third course identifies ways for physicians and advanced practitioners to integrate ACP into routine patient care, including billing. Each course includes downloadable tools and resources.
