Put Patient Wishes First with A Personal Decision
Posted on: 1/1/2013

For physicians, discussing end-of-life decisions is practical and necessary; for patients, it's likely something they'd rather not deal with. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, only 18-36 percent of the adult population have completed directives concerning their future medical care.

ISMS believes in the necessity of advance directives and thus has published A Personal Decision, a booklet that provides Illinois patients with practical information about determining their options, including:

  • A Living Will Form
  • Do-Not-Resuscitate Order
  • IL Power of Attorney Act Official Statutory Form
  • IL Official Statutory Declaration for Mental Health Treatment
  • An Organ Donor Card

Value-added benefit for your practice

As an ISMS member, you may receive up to 300 free print copies of A Personal Decision per year to distribute to your patients. (If non-members were to purchase 300 copies, it would cost $225!)

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to serve your patients. To order your copies, please contact the ISMS Purchasing Department at 800-782-4767 or send an email.
