PLEASE use this description of the PREPARE program for other purposes:

"PREPARE for Your Care is an online resource that helps people learn about and prepare for medical decision making. It is evidenced-based and includes video stories in English and Spanish that guides users as they explore their wishes and learn how to discuss them with family, friends, and medical providers. The website also offers PREPARE written pamphlets and Toolkits to put on PREPARE Group Movie Events. These Movie Events can be used in group medical visits or in the community. PREPARE also offers easy-to-read, legally-valid advance directives for all 50 states in English and Spanish. Check out PREPARE here: www.prepareforyourcare.org.”
