Care Planning for Smarties #5 – Care Lingo Decoded. Plus California’s End of Life Option Act.
October 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Peninsula Center Library
Continuing your “Agent in training” work you’ll unravel hospital and care lingo like CPR, POLST, DNR, AND, ANH, intubation, feeding tube, respirator and much more. We’ll wrap up with the nuts and bolts of California’s 2016 physician-assisted suicide law.
Care planning is the way you can obtain the health and medical care you want and avoid the care you don’t want, even if you’re ill and can’t speak for yourself. Presenters Edward Long, JD and Ellen Gorbunoff, RN (board members of Caring House, Torrance) developed this series of programs based on years of experience seeing both successful and failed care planning.
