Description / Summary

This webinar was held on September 7th, 2021. The presentation provided an overview of learnings from, and resources developed as a part of a two-year project (2020-2021) aimed to promote the engagement of people living with dementia and family/friend caregivers in Advance Care Planning (ACP). The project builds on the proven success of an existing, sustainable, community-led education model co-developed by BC Centre for Palliative Care (BCCPC) to support community organizations facilitate ACP programs for the public. We shared information for the audience to gain:

  • understanding of ACP and BCCPC's community-led education model;
  • knowledge of barriers and facilitating factors to engaging people living with early stages of dementia and family/friend caregivers in ACP; and
  • awareness of resources developed by the project for community organizations, people living with dementia, and family/friend caregivers in British Columbia.
