These guidelines will be reviewed, as well as, the proper technique of a pap smear and the evidence for and against screening pelvic exams.

4:30pm-5:15pm Making Sure We’re Heard: Speak(Easy) Howard’s Approach to Advance Care Planning

Speak(easy) Howard helps Howard County residents think through their preferences for care and name who they want to make medical decisions for them if they can’t. The campaign, an initiative of the Horizon Foundation, walks through the first steps residents can take to protect their loved ones and help them honor their wishes, even when they can’t speak for themselves. Speak(easy) Howard has been developed over several years and has included running a collaborative with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to test the campaign approach and build engagement; designing a user friendly form to legally name a health care agent; developing a website that transmits advance care planning documents to healthcare providers; and crafting a marketing campaign to increase awareness and drive action.
