on about making their wishes known and then have taken the steps to request an advance directive form has been remarkable," said Kathy Brandt, vice president of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and a member of the NHDD executive committee. "Just as important as putting this information into peoples' hands is making sure they complete the directives and take time to talk about their wishes with their loved ones and healthcare provides."

National Healthcare Decisions Day is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding healthcare through conversations and the completion of advance directives. NHDD is also working with providers and facilities to ensure that individual wishes are respected, whatever they may be.
