Advance Planning Guide and Notary Services

April 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Pick up complimentary advance planning guide, including on site notary services in preparation for National Healthcare Decisions Day.

April 16 has been designated as National Healthcare Decisions Day!  The National Healthcare Decisions Day Initiative is a collaborative effort of national, state and community organizations committed to ensuring that all adults with decision-making capacity in the United States have the information and opportunity to communicate and document their healthcare decisions.  The objectives of NHDD are to provide much-needed information to the public, reduce the number of tragedies that occur when a person’s wishes are unknown, and improve the ability of healthcare facilities and providers to offer informed and thoughtful guidance about advance healthcare planning to their patients.

Partners in Primary Care and Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care, along with over 1,000 other national, state and community organizations, is proud to participate in NHDD which will be celebrated on April 16.  The theme for this year’s NHDD is “It always seems too early, until it’s too late.”  It will be our goal to encourage all adults to complete their own advance directive so that we may be better equipped to answer questions and assist patients in completing their
advance directive.  Please don’t forget that advance directive information is available at The Center for Practical Bioethics, https://www.practicalbioethics.org/resources/caring- conversations. We will also be providing information to the public, including on site notary services.
