NASW is pleased to continue its support for National Healthcare Decisions Day, now in its seventh year. Join the observance by encouraging your clients to consider, discuss, and document their goals for their health care—and by preparing, reviewing, and sharing your own advance directives.
Advance care planning is more than a document. It’s an ongoing process that can help each individual direct her or his health care. Social workers play an integral role in helping clients understand, and engage in, advance care planning.
