Presbyterian Raises Awareness About Advance Directives on National Health Care Decisions Day

In recognition of National Healthcare Decisions Day, Presbyterian Healthcare Services had Advance Directive Ambassadors available at all Presbyterian Medical Group locations in Albuquerque to answer questions about advance care planning and provide advance directive documents.

National data from The Conversation Project, an organization dedicated to helping people talk about end-of-life wishes, shows that most people say advance directives are important, but only about 30 percent have one. National Healthcare Decisions Day focuses on encouraging people to think about advance care planning and advance directives.
