The Advance Care Planning and Collaborative Research & Innovation Opportunities Program (ACP CRIO) hosted a “World Cafe” with 67 attendants and 46 community groups. The World Cafe method gathers dialogue on “questions that matter” by creating a welcoming cafe environment, where participants, in small groups, ponder and discuss the questions together. After analyzing close to 800 comments, 8 recommendations were concluded to increase Albertans’ awareness of and participation in Advance Care Planning.
Some of the recommendations include:
– Make Advance Care Planning resources easily accessible to community groups
– Use stories/make use of personal experiences
– Standardize Advance Care Planning terminology across the country
