ETH-035: Statewide Effort to Improve Advance Care Planning

 
Statewide Effort to Improve Advance Care Planning: Advance care planning is an important part of every patient’s health care, and despite the existence of advance directives, there is a continuing need for improved advance care planning in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Medical Society supports the education of physicians in the development and implementation, in conjunction with patients and families, of well-informed advance care planning and end-of-life care choices by patients.

The Wisconsin Medical Society supports statewide efforts to improve advance care planning through education, community outreach and pilot programs among physicians and the public. (HOD, 0418)
