Join NASW in Observing National Healthcare Decisions Day: April 16

Observe National Healthcare Decisions Day, now in its sixth year, by encouraging your clients to consider, discuss, and document their goals for their health care—and by preparing or reviewing your own advance directives. NASW is pleased to continue its support for this observance, scheduled for April 16.

Advance care planning promotes self-determination and is integral to person-centered health care. Social workers play an integral role in helping clients understand, participate in, and communicate about advance care planning.
