Advance Care Planning Tools That Educate, Engage, and Empower

In the current issue of Public Policy & Aging Report, Charlie Sabatino, American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging, has contributed “Advance Care Planning Tools That Educate, Engage, and Empower.”

Sabatino reviews a variety of pathways, tools, workbooks, and decision aids have been emerging to facilitate advance care planning and to enable documentation of one’s goals and wishes. He focuses on tools that actively engage users or at least lead users through questions that result in a work product.

The issue also includes several articles on the Campaign to End Unwanted Medical Treatment.
