National Healthcare Decisions Day
The 6th Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day was held on April 16, 2013. The goal of the National Healthcare Decisions Day initiative is to ensure that "all adults with decision-making capacity in the United States have the information and opportunity to communicate and document their healthcare decisions." A collaborative effort among national, state and community organizations, NHDD is intended to increase awareness of the purposes and benefits of advance care planning, make resources for completing an advance directive available to those wishing to complete a directive, and encourage conversations with family, friends and health care providers about future healthcare wishes. For more information about National Healthcare Decisions Day, please visit their website at www.nhdd.org.
