ETH-036: 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 will work to initiate a statewide effort to improve advance care planning through education, community outreach, and pilot programs among physicians and the public. (HOD, 0412)
