All documents (PDF files) are in Chinese Simplified only and are intended for educational purposes to facilitate the discussion of the topics with Hawaii residents with limited English proficiency. The Hawaii Advance Directive is the only exception, with a bilingual layout block by block.

We want to extend a big thank you to the Chinese American Coalition for Compassionate Care for their wonderful collaboration translating the Kōkua Mau documents.
As more Chinese language materials become available we may list selected resources from other organizations here.
The Conversation Project isn't about filling out Advance Directives or other medical forms. It's about talking to your loved ones about what you or they want for end-of-life care. The Conversation Project offers a Starter Kit that will help you or your organization to get your thoughts together and then have 'the conversation'.
A Chinese version of the Starter Kit is available on their website. (Please scroll all the way down to the Starter Kit Translations fold out menu and download the PDF file.)
Multilingual Resources, including Advance Directives or POLST are available on the Kōkua Mau website: www.kokuamau.org/languages.
We thank the collaborative effort of our sponsors that made this translation project possible.
