70% of Americans do not have Advanced Care Planning (ACP) measures in place and Hispanics are less likely to engage in ACP than other groups. As the number of Hispanic older adults aged 65 and older is expected to significantly grow within the next few decades, it is crucial that healthcare professionals better understand how to engage in conversations with older Hispanic adults about ACP. This guide will help healthcare professionals identify the different types of ACP documentation, who can start the conversation, cultural considerations with assisting Hispanic older adults with ACP, tips and strategies for starting the conversation, and other resources.
