A Final Gift: Advanced Directives

The desire to control our final destiny requires knowledge of what is to come. We must articulate our final wishes and ensure that when we are unable to self-advocate, others can speak on our behalf. This course is a journey of understanding, from the role the ICU often plays in our final days, to acknowledging responsibility to ourselves, loved ones, and society. Students will gain the knowledge, skills, and necessary tools to document decisions. MSC

(Note: This course has been extended from 5 to 6 weeks.)
