What You and YOUR SDM Need to Talk About

Our team of Advance Care Planning professionals bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to Substitute Decision Making. In this webinar from Nov 2021, we discuss and explore questions, such as: What do I need to share with my Substitute Decision Maker in order to prepare them, What is most important to me, what do I value that could guide someone else to make decisions on my behalf, and how do I start these conversations?

The session was recorded and is available on YouTube.

What is Advance Care Planning in Ontario?
