Advance Care Planning

"At INTEGRIS Health, we know these conversations can feel daunting. We also know a crisis can strike anyone. We believe talking about your goals and wishes is an important part of everyday care, from wellness to illness. Giving your family the gift of your voice and decisions before a crisis means they can feel certain in carrying out your choices – should that crisis occur."

– Jessica Zan, manager of Advance Care Planning at INTEGRIS Health

Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is a process for directing medical treatment and interventions at a time in the future when you can no longer make your wishes known. If a sudden event leaves you unable to communicate, this gives you the opportunity to share your values and wishes for treatment. This process starts with conversations between you, family, friends, and your healthcare provider. Advance care planning is for everyone at any point in life.
