Advance Care Planning Resources
The ANTHC Palliative Care Program has developed innovative clinical tools for advance care planning that integrate concepts of cultural humility in order to respect the diverse traditions and cultures of Alaska Native and American Indian people. By incorporating the traditional values of storytelling and vivid imagery, the concepts of advance care planning are explored through the use of conversation maps, group visits and conversation guides.
