Advance Care Planning video at UCHealth

 

It is always a joy to realize that one works with amazing colleagues. Here is a video (in which I participated), on the emphasis UCHealth is placing on Advance Care Planning, specifically of Durable Power of Attorney for Health care, a Living will, the 5 wishes documents. It is a way for our patients to indicate to us their wishes for end-of-life care.

Equally important, we have made it much easier for patients to submit their own documents and statements directly into their electronic health record through their patient-portal, that we call My Health Connection.

Thank to to our team, and to teams worldwide, who are raising awareness and assisting patients with expressing these very important wishes, and making them known to their healthcare providers.

CMIO’s take? Thank you to our team, and to teams worldwide, who are raising awareness and assisting patients with expressing these very important wishes, and making them known to their healthcare providers.
