Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Grand Rapids First United Methodist Church
ACP discussion


Person-centered decision-making considers and integrates an individual’s goals, values and preferences when delivering care. It is essential for care team members to listen for and validate what matters most, as failure to do this may result in unwanted or unnecessary care. Storytelling allows individuals to share what is most important to them through their own perspective, allowing a two-way conversation that results in a shared understanding. Through storytelling, this session will share patient and families’ experiences—good, bad, and ugly—demonstrated with the presence or absence of a person-centered decision-making approach to care.
