It's Time to Discuss Personal Decisions
Posted on: 8/16/2016


When is the ideal time to bring up the topic with your patients about future health care wishes?

The sooner the better – before it’s too late. In fact, right now would be good.

Start the conversation about advance directives with ISMS' newly updated free resource, A Personal Decision. The booklet provides practical information, sample forms and guidance on advance directives, including:

  • Living wills.
  • Power of attorney for health care.
  • Mental health treatment preference declarations.
  • Uniform DNR/POLST form.
  • Organ donation.

ISMS has recently updated this resource to reflect changes in Illinois law.

Member physicians may obtain up to 300 FREE print copies per year for distribution to patients. Call 800-782-4767 or send an email to order print copies.
