    Family doctors across Canada all need to rev up scheduling Advance Care Planning conversations (yes, plural) with all their adult patients – millennials to 90+. And they all need proper billing fee ability for this. This is an extremely important lesson COVID19 has brought to the forefront – we must have the conversations, choose substitute decision makers and document our goals of care. This will greatly help families, caregivers and hospital medical staff in making treatment decisions.
