Advance care planning information session in Moncton

(MONCTON) April 17, 2018 - In recognition of National Advance Care Planning Day, Horizon Health Network, together with the New Brunswick Hospice Palliative Care Association (NBHPCA), are hosting a free public session on planning for future health care needs.  

Patients, families and health care professionals are invited to attend the session being held on April 19.  

  • English-only session - Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m. at The Moncton Hospital, 135 MacBeath Avenue, in Amphitheatre A. The session is hosted by Dr. Pam Mansfield, palliative medicine physician at The Moncton Hospital, assistant professor Dalhousie University, and past president of the NBHPCA.

This informative planning session will provide an opportunity to learn how to create a personalized advanced care plan and how to tell loved ones what would be important should they become ill and unable to communicate. 

Advance Care Planning is a process of thinking about and sharing your wishes for future health and personal care needs. It involves deciding who will speak for you, if you cannot speak for yourself. It is a way to give loved ones the confidence to make decisions for you during a difficult time.
