Are you interested in how to engage your clients in a way that will optimally prepare them for future periods of incapacitation, from the medical decision-making point of view? Dr. Heyland has studied medical decision-making for more than two decades and has developed a free, online tool, www.planwellguide.com, that can better help your clients prepare themselves (and their substitute decision-maker) for future serious illness decision-making. He will explain the current problems with communication and decision-making related to serious illness, introduce you to the Plan Well Guide, and discuss a possible collaboration with lawyers. Ultimately, this collaboration will take less of your time, cost no money and provide better value to your clients.
Join Dr. Daren K. Heyland, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Professor of Medicine, Queen’s University and critical care doctor, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, for this timely and informative presentation about the Plan Well Guide, and the opportunity for doctors and lawyers to work together on behalf of their patients/clients.
