HealthCare Decisions Day: Start the Conversation

Posted on 04/10/2013

Healthworks Collective: The Conversation Project is a public engagement campaign to have every person’s end-of-life wishes expressed and respected. The Conversation Project website offers information, tools, resources and guidance to help people begin talking with their loved ones. The Conversation Project does not promote any specific preference, but rather encourages people to speak up and express their own personal wishes.

“The Conversation Project is thrilled to be a part of National Healthcare Decisions Day,” said Ellen Goodman co-founder of The Conversation Project. “This is an excellent opportunity to educate the community on a national level and help people prepare for end-of-life from a financial point of view. In light of tax day, there is no better time than now for friends and family to join in the conversation and encourage others to discuss their wishes for end-of-life care.”

In this video interview, Martha Hayward, Lead for Public and Patient Engagement at The Institute for HealthCare Improvement, talks about HealthCare Decisions Day and The Conversation Project.
