Spirituality as a Foundation for Advance Care Planning

Making medical decisions for oneself requires understanding the medical realities and treatment options available. But it also requires a safe space to think about one’s true preferences and values. Unfortunately, most healthcare professionals are either uncomfortable or not equipped to address what may be the most important part of a person’s value system, their spiritual life. Friends and colleagues, Pastor Corey Kennard and Dr. Jessica Zitter will discuss the importance of spirituality in advance care planning discussions.
