Advance Care Planning is a process of coming to understand, reflect on, discuss, and plan for a time when you cannot make your own medical decisions and are unlikely to recover from your injury or illness. Effective planning is the best way to make sure your views are respected by your loved ones and healthcare providers. This process also provides comfort to those who may make end-of-life decisions for you. Good advance care planning improves the quality of your advance directives. Planning for your future can be made easier with help from Advance Care Planning at KishHealth System, part of Northwestern Medicine. All services provided by the Advance Care Planning department are available at no cost and include completion of all advance care planning documents.
