National Healthcare Decisions Day

Raising Awareness

Image of Caregiver Educating PatientNational Healthcare Decisions Day aims to help people across the country understand the value of advance care planning. It was created to inspire, educate, and empower the public to express their wishes regarding health care so providers and facilities can honor your requests, whatever they may be. This program is leading the effort to highlight the importance of advance care planning, an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16 as National Healthcare Decisions Day, and April 16 through 20 as National Healthcare Decisions Week.
