Caring Conversations® - Making Your Wishes Known for End-of-Life Care

Centre for Practical Bioethics (formerly the Midwest Bioethics Centre)
Caring Conversations® is a consumer education initiative that helps individuals and their families share meaningful conversation while making practical preparations for end-of-life decisions. Each copy of Caring Conversations® includes a healthcare directive document and a durable power of attorney for healthcare decisions. Caring Conversations®, developed by the Center for Practical Bioethics, is designed to guide individuals and their families through the process of developing an advance care plan. It provides a framework for considering what is most important, and guidance on communicating wishes to loved ones, healthcare providers and, the person chosen to speak for the individual. Caring Conversations® also equips individuals with information to formalize their wishes for end-of-life care (Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions and Healthcare Treatment Directive).
