CFP: Advance Care Planning (Conference)

The 3rd International Society of Advance Care Planning and End of Life Care Conference (ACPEL) Program Committee invites the submission of abstracts for original work for consideration as an oral or poster presentation in the ACPEL program. The conference is designed both for those who are at the early stages of learning about effective advance care planning programs and for those who are dealing with more complex implementation problems. Abstracts will be selected so as to provide content to a broad range of delegates. The Scientific Committee will select abstracts that represent a range of settings, issues, and both practical/clinical as well as theoretical concerns.

This year’s conference theme is: Informed Choices: Keeping the Person at the Centre of Care. The purpose of the conference is to provide state-of-the-art advance care planning and end-of-life communication from a clinical, ethical, educational, research, legal, and policy perspective. The conference will meet in Chicago, 31 May to 2 June 2012.

Conference objectives:

  • Identify key elements in developing evidence-based advance care planning programs.
