Advance Care Planning


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Learn about your own health.

If you have a medical condition, it’s important to talk to your doctor or other healthcare providers. Y​​​​ou can ask about what you can expect in the future (your prognosis) because of your medical condition. You can learn what the medical treatments for your condition are and what to expect from them. You can under​stand the types of healthcare decisions you may need to make.

“While we can never predict exactly what life will bring, I can talk to you generally about what other patients with your condition have experienced.”
