PCHPCA announces free ACP facilitator training
The board of directors of the Putnam County Hospice and Palliative Care Association (PCHPCA) have announced a free advanced care planning (ACP) facilitator training for practitioners in Putnam County.
The training is Respecting Choices’ First Steps ACP facilitator certification. It is designed for professionals and health-care providers (nurses, health educators, physicians and social workers), clergy, attorneys and others involved in advanced care planning facilitation.
The training includes completion of online education modules, as well as a day-of in-person training. The in-person portion of the training will be held on Sept. 30, and will be conducted remotely due to concerns about the continued spread of COVID-19.
Additional information about the training and certification is available at https://respectingchoices.org/types-of-curriculum-and-certification/facilitator-....
Space is limited, and the PCHPCA will be accepting applications to attend the training. The first 20 applicants who are approved will receive full scholarships.
Applications are due by July 31. Continuing education credits will be offered for various professions, and those who complete the course will become certified First Steps ACP facilitators.
Those interested may contact Director Elaine Peck at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an application.
