Le 16 avril sera la Journée nationale de la planification préalable des soins

Le fossé des devinettes peut être comblé par une simple discussion.


April 16th is National Advance Care Planning Day

April 16th is National Advance Care Planning (ACP) Day in Canada. We are reaching out for your help to raise awareness of the importance of Advance care planning for all Canadians.

I would be happy to chat with you about the campaign, and can put you in touch with local or regional researchers and experts who can help with a story. We have a list of ACP champions (group of experts and professionals) across all provinces/territories that could be speakers in radio and television interviews if that's possible.

We also have a campaign awareness short video featuring Walter Gretzky speaking about the importance of advance care planning for him and his family.

Advance care planning is a process of refection and communication in which a person who is capable of making decisions expresses their wishes regarding their future health and/or personal care. This year's awareness campaign theme is "They know me well".

Thank you for your consideration; I look forward to hearing from you! araafat@chpca.net
