As a nurse, understanding Advance Care Planning, Personal Directives, Goals of Care Directives, and the Green Sleeve documents are important to providing quality care to your clients. They are also important personally.

Master these topics in the three-part Webinar Series: Advance Care Planning, brought to you by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA).

All webinars are FREE! No registration fee to attend.

In Alberta, Goals of Care Designations (GCDs) are shorthand codes that guide healthcare and medical treatments provided to patients/clients. As healthcare providers, understanding GCDs is central to providing care that is both medically appropriate and respectful of patient’s unique values and healthcare wishes.

In this webinar, you will:

  1. Build understanding and confidence around interpreting GCDs.
  2. Explore the importance of Goals of Care conversations.
  3. Learn what nursing roles and responsibilities are around GCDs.

Documentation related to both Advance Care Planning (ACP) and Goals of Care Designations (GCD) directly impact nursing practice. As healthcare providers, we need to be aware of what these documents mean and how to ensure this information gets communicated to other healthcare providers.

In this webinar, you will:

  1. Learn processes related to Personal Directives and GCD order forms.
  2. Learn nursing roles and responsibilities in documenting on the ACPGCD Tracking Record.
  3. Discover what the Green Sleeve is, why it is important, and what we need to ensure patients/clients know about it.
