Psychiatric Advance Directives - Concept to Practice: A Virginia Case Study
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time
(11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Pacific; noon to 1:30 p.m. Mountain; and 1 to 2:30 p.m. Central)
This online webinar will discuss how advance directives have evolved over the last several decades to become much more holistic tools that can contribute to wellness and recovery. We will also address how legislative changes in Virginia served as a springboard for a statewide effort to implement advance directives into routine mental health care practice. The project has led to many lessons in how to implement advance directives, which bridge communication gaps, coordinate care across providers, and strengthen health care recipients' voices in their care.
