Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. The Health Care Consent Advance Care Planning Community of Practice (HCC ACP CoP) was created to respond to the need for a provincial resource for health care consent and advance care practice utilizing an Ontario legal framework. HPCO remains dedicated to hosting and supporting the HCC ACP CoP, and continuing with the work that encourages HCC ACP discussions, reinforces the connections, and participates in the shared dialogue and opportunities of CoP collaboration.
