About the Event
Advance care documents are tricky to complete if you don't understand the context or consequences of the medical decisions you are asked to make. What is a health care proxy, and what does the role entail? Do you want artificial nutrition when you can no longer feed yourself? How about a ventilator? How do you feel about being in an ICU?
