You probably didn’t know it, but today is National Healthcare Decisions Day.
National Healthcare Decisions Day is a day dedicated to informing the public about health care proxies, living wills, and other issues related to making decisions about end-of-life care. Their website includes links to documents and resources to help inform these important discussions.
Massachusetts is making progress on these issues, but more remains to be done. Maybe one of our health care decisions policymakers can make today is to promote more informed health care decisions.
