Respecting Choices

Respecting Choices is a model training program for facilitators who become resident experts in Advance Care Planning at health facilities and has a strong focus on organizational policy. The goal of the program is to build respect for choices into each organization’s policies. A variety of posters, workbooks and planning guides are available in English and Spanish for work with consumers. The program was developed by the Gunderson Lutheran Medical Foundation (LaCrosse,Wis) in the early 1990s. It has consistently demonstrated success with follow back studies showing 85% of patients have completed advance directives and that families felt that their loved ones wishes were honored through the ending of life as a result.
