Respecting Choices is an internationally recognized, evidence-based model of advance care planning that creates a healthcare culture of person-centered care: care that honors an individual’s goals and values for current and future healthcare. The advance care planning (ACP) Facilitator is an emerging role in healthcare. ACP Facilitators are instrumental in helping individuals, their families, and their loved ones become more engaged in person-centered decision making. If ACP conversations were easy, they would be more commonplace than they are today.
