The 7th Annual National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) will be held on April 16, 2014. This nationwide annual initiative was established to inspire and educate the public about the importance of advance health care planning. The mission of NHDD is to encourage and empower patients to plan ahead and express their personal health care wishes, and to encourage providers and facilities to respect those wishes.
The NHDD 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 opportunities they need to communicate and document their health care decisions. AACOM is a national participant in the NHDD initiative.
