Summary:

Healthcare professionals have an important role in helping patients and families formulate advance directives. Despite intensive efforts, most Americans don’t have an AD and may face a life-threatening illness without a plan to guide their healthcare providers or relatives. End-of-life care experts stress the need for major changes in the approach to promoting ADs, including a focus on promoting ongoing dialogue between patients and healthcare providers. As patient advocates, clinicians are in a strong position to work with patients and other healthcare professionals to make these important changes occur. 

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to provide nurses, advanced practice nurses, physicians, health educators, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, dietitians, and respiratory therapists with information about ways to improve the advance directive process. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify barriers that patients, families and healthcare professionals face in implementing Advance Directives
  • Describe problems created by lack of an Advance Directive
  • Describe new ways that healthcare professionals can involve patients in advance care planning
