Introducing a pilot multidisciplinary advanced care planning educational media package guide in Guam: A survey on knowledge, attitudes, and barriers of advanced care planning and end-of-life decision making in Pacific Islanders

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Guam/Micronesia Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program, Guam
Key Outcomes:
Participants responded positively to the informative workshop sessions. Local Pacific Islanders in Guam are highly willing to learn more about and actively engage in ACP/EOL care practices on island, despite limited local discussions surrounding such topic. It is evident that future workshops and outreach initiatives to increase awareness on ACP/EOL care in Guam render tremendous potential and should be strongly considered not only to increase public awareness on such topics on Guam but also to positively impact local Pacific Islander perspectives and thus increase engagement rates on island.
