Advance Care Planning: Understand Your Options
Advance care planning is a widely recognized way to support patient self-determination, facilitate decision making, and promote better care at the end of life (AMA). Regardless of health status, everyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to think about and document their values and treatment preferences to guide future medical decisions about their care.
This includes appointing a health care agent. Refer to the Advance Directives Information Sheet or your member handbook for more information on the advance care planning process and how to create an electronic advance directive.
