Description

Muslim perspectives on advance care planning: thinking about your wishes for future health and personal care



Who - Everyone is invited to attend and learn about our perspectives on advance care planning from prominent scholars, physicians, and community members.

What - Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let people know what kind of health and personal care you would want in the future if you were unable to speak for yourself. It means having discussions with family and friends, especially your Substitute Decision Maker – the person who will speak for you if you cannot speak for yourself. It may also include writing down your wishes, and talking with healthcare providers and financial or legal professionals. (https://www.advancecareplanning.ca/what-is-advance-care-planning/)

When - November 3, 2019, 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Where - The Genesis Centre

Why? - Advance care planning is an important component of your overall healthcare. Your healthcare providers want to provide care in keeping with what you want, rather than what they think you would want. Having conversations with your family and your family doctor or healthcare team can help you get the care that you want, and ease the burden on your family if you were unable to speak for yourself. Sometimes people wonder how Advance Care Planning is viewed in or relates to Islam. Attend this event, and let us help you start this conversation.

Light refreshments will be served!
