What does it mean to be trained as a First Steps Facilitator?

  • You will learn how to help people think and talk about Advance Care Planning (ACP) in a research-based thoughtful manner, using proven interview techniques
  • You will learn about why ACP is important and how to explain that to others
  • You will become familiar with requirements for health care directives and challenges people face in completing them, as well as learn ways to get past the challenges
  • You will develop confidence in your ability to talk about ACP in a meaningful way with others

What are people saying?  Comments from past participants:

  • "This class was very good! I learned so much about how to have more effective conversations with my residents and families."
  • "Excellent class - I'm hopeful and excited about getting an organized approach in our community!"
  • "This was a great seminar! I learned so much and appreciate making the connections with others."
  • "Very informative! Can't wait to utilize this information."

Training at your location: We can bring First Steps Facilitator training to you if that would make it more convenient.  We simply require a minimum of 16 commited participants to reserve the date.  If this is of interest, please email us and we can explain the registration process and fee structure, and start working on details.  If you are not sure you could gather 16 people, we can assist in identifying other nearby sites which might be interested in joining the class.
