Special Edition JLCP Available in Hard Copy

In December 2018, IARP and Elliott and Fitzpatrick released a life care planning summit compendium, containing all Summit Proceedings as well as Consensus and Majority Statements published since 2000. This 200+ page document contains best practice statements culminated over two decades in the field of life care planning and is based upon the work of hundreds of life care planners from multiple disciplines.

For subscribers to the Journal of Life Care Planning, this document was provided electronically. Elliott & Fitzpatrick, however, is now making a hard-copy of this special issue available to any IARP member for $35 and to non-IARP members for $45. A hard-copy subscription to the Journal of Life Care Planning is not required for this one-time purchase opportunity.
