The Center has promoted Caring Conversations for years as a way for families to prepare for serious illness or the end of life. Over time, it became apparent that, oftentimes, even when a person appointed an agent to speak for them when they could no longer speak for themselves, neither the person nor the agent fully understood their roles and responsibilities. Thus, in ____, the Center published a major revision of Caring Conversations, which two of the authors, Sandy Silva and Helen Emmott, discuss in this recording. The revision emphasizes the partnership between the person and his or her agent or surrogate. (March 22, 2012)
