The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of advance care planning, which helps individuals clarify their preferences for future medical care and assists healthcare providers in honoring these preferences when delivering care. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs offers a best practice approach to advance care planning - having the conversation in a group setting. Advance Care Planning via Group Visits engages Veterans, their families and caregivers in advance care planning by facilitating a group discussion that elicits personal experience(s) and encourages participants to identify a ‘next step’ to take in the process of planning for future health care needs. This presentation will describe the Advance Care Planning via Group Visits model, its impact on these conversations and the important role social workers can play in reimagining ACP within their care setting.
