Advance Care Planning to Reduce Rehospitalizations #326

Online, On-Demand Continuing Education Courses

Michigan State University School of Social Work seeks to be as accessible as possible. You can now receive social work continuing education credit at your leisure—when it's convenient for you! Save travel time and cost. The new licensure law states that, in Michigan, Social Workers may earn up to one-half of the required continuing education contact hours in person using live, synchronous contact. The remaining continuing education contact hours may be completed in any other approved format. If you live outside of Michigan, check with your state's social work regulatory body. For more information, please see the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Director's Office Social Work General Rules. (R 338. 2963)

Advance Care Planning involves learning about types of decisions that might need to be made during end of life processes. Formulating an Advance Care Plan and Advance Directives lets others know what YOUR choices are and provides a framework for providing care and services if you cannot express your values and desires. Advance Care Planning offers an opportunity to have open discussions with your loved ones about care preferences before an illness or injury.
