Advance Care Planning - The Workshop

A follow up workshop to our March 1st Presentation*

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process of thinking about, talking about, and documenting your preferences and goals for future medical care. It helps others know what type of medical care you want. Our earlier March 1st presentation covered the following:

  • Understand the process of ACP.
  • Understand what a health care directive is and why it’s important to complete one.
  • Understand how to choose a health care agent.

In this VIRTUAL, interactive workshop we’re going to roll up our sleeves and begin the guided process of building out your own custom Health Care Directive. 

Attendees will be supplied all necessary forms and will have an opportunity to fill out their own forms through a guided online process.

*While attending the March 1st 2021 Advanced Care Planning overview presentation is not required it is highly encouraged to fully understand the full scope of the importance and process.

Date: Monday, March 8, 2021

Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: Online via Zoom

Price: $15 Members, $25 Non-Members

Kerry Gervais Hjelmgren is the recently appointed Executive Director of Honoring Choices Minnesota. Before this role, she coordinated and developed a grassroots Honoring Choices Advance Care Planning program for the communities of Faribault and Owatonna as a part of the Honoring Choices Greater Minnesota ACP initiative.

Prior to Honoring Choices, she specialized in health care education and staff development for 12 years, and cemented her passion for assisting others with end-of-life issues during her four years working in hospice.

Her main goal is for every Minnesotan to understand what advance care planning is, why it is essential for all adults to engage in the process, and where to find helpful tools and resources to complete a health care directive.

Please note: registering through the event page for the event is just STEP ONE of a TWO-STEP Registration Process.

Step Two: The Zoom link contained on the confirmation or in the confirmation email will take you to a second page, which is the registration process for our Zoom Virtual Conference Platform which will ask you to re-enter your name and email to confirm. That second registration will generate a meeting invitation email which contains your UNIQUE MEETING LINK AND PASSCODE that will allow you to log-in to the meeting/call/workshop at the appointed time.

Yes, we realize that a double registration process can be a bit frustrating, however this addition step is to protect our virtual meeting from uninvited guests gaining access to the online classroom and causing any type of nuisance or disruption.

Thank you for your patience with this additional SHIFT safety process and protocol.


In the event that SHIFT cancels a program, you’ll receive a refund of your registration payment.

SHIFT will not issue credits or refunds in the following circumstances:

  • You cancel your registration
