COVID-19 Virtual Care Strategies: Include Advance Care Planning Why and How to Get it Done

In normal times, Advance Care Planning (ACP) is already part of high-quality primary care. During the COVID 19 public health emergency, it is crucial that providers add it to their planned movement to virtual care.

For older patients and those with chronic conditions, this means preparing for the possibility of serious illness for the next year or more.
