EME-023: Practical Use of Advance Directives in Medical Education

 
Practical Use of Advance Directives in Medical Education: The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) asks the American Medical Association (AMA) to recommend that all Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME)-, and Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA)-accredited medical schools provide students the opportunity to complete an advance directive and learn to further address advance care planning in the course of their curricula.

The Society asks the AMA to encourage the LCME and COCA to include in their current accreditation standards opportunities for personal completion of advance directives by medical students and opportunities to further address advance care planning in the course of the medical school curricula.

The Society encourages development of a model educational module for the teaching of advance directives and advance care planning. (HOD, 0414)
