What is the State of ACP In Communities in California?

How difficult is it for residents in your community to access appropriate ACP (Advance Care Planning) services?  In my experience, these conversations are often deferred until the time of a crisis, but we know these conversations are less beneficial then due to crisis related compromised cognition and emotional stress for patients, families, and providers.  Are there communities in our state where there are champions doing this good work electively in their community, particularly targeting members of their community who historically are less likely to have serious illness conversations and supported decision making?

The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) has a grant to identify healthcare and community-based organizations that are engaged in, or interested in engaging in, ACP.  To help identify these leaders and learn about their ACP activities, we hope you will complete this brief survey or forward it to the lead person for advance care planning within your organization (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VKP77MY ).  For additional information about the survey, please contact Keeta Scholl, CCCC Program manager at [email protected]
