The fifth annual National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) will be held on April 16, 2012, and aims to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. NHDD is an initiative to encourage patients to express their wishes regarding health care, and for providers and facilities to respect those wishes, whatever they may be.
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 opportunity they need to communicate and document their health care decisions. AACOM is a National Participant in the NHDD initiative.
