National Healthcare Decisions Day is on April 16, 2013! Physicians and other healthcare professionals use this day to raise awareness regarding the need to plan, communicate, and document end of life preferences. Patients should be encouraged to contemplate and discuss with their loved ones how they wish them to proceed in particular situations. Advance directives such as a living will or Healthcare Power of Attorney forms enable a patient’s loved ones to abide by the patient’s end of life wishes.
