Share Your Wishes with your Healthcare Team

YOU are the most important person on your care team, and you can drive the direction of your care. Receive the best care possible by telling your healthcare providers What Matters most to you.

  • Discuss your advance care plans with them and have your wishes documented in your medical records.
  • Make sure to give your healthcare team a copy of your advanced care planning documents, and if possible, have your health care proxy with you at some of your health care visits if you feel comfortable.

These conversations can be lengthy and sometimes difficult, but they are needed for your care team and loved ones if they are to align your care with your priorities and goals.
