Advanced Directives: What They Are and How They Impact Patient Care

2021 Spring Education Webinar

Recorded on May 5, 2021


Catherine Walberg, JD

Program Description

Advanced directives allow patients to “speak” when incapacity renders them unable to speak for themselves. This session will explore the different categories of advance directives and provide insight into how they work together to inform the healthcare team of patients’ wishes. Ms. Walberg will present scenarios for how advanced directives direct who can and cannot play a role in a patient’s healthcare experience and the consequent impact on well-meaning family and friends. Come with your experience and questions, and we will do our best to unpack the tricky situations you experience every day!
