- Advance Care Planning - Tuesday, November 5, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm, Room C408
British Columbia has legislation that allows individuals to express their wishes regarding the care they want to receive or reject. We encourage you to have a conversation with family and friends to discuss your values and instructions. An Advance Care Plan is a written summary of those values and instructions. This workshop looks at the options that can go into this written summary. RSVP below.
