Shared via NHPCO – End-of-life instructions find no place in electronic health records – Joanne Kenen – POLITICO

Important article!

“Advanced care planning — talking about and recording what individuals do or don’t want when terminally ill — is a weak point in the health care system…”

It is a missed opportunity! whether the discussion takes place with a physician, nurse, social worker, physiotherapist, occupational therapist,,,,it needs to happen! When one is in crisis is not the time to think about it!
