Renewing the Conversation: Respecting Patients’ Wishes and Advance Care Planning

Posted Jun 29 2013 1:17pm
This week, there was a good hearing before the Senate Special Committee on Aging, titled "Renewing the Conversation: Respecting Patients’ Wishes and Advance Care Planning."  

A video of the hearing is available here .  Witnesses included:  

  • James Towey, Founder, Aging with Dignity and President, Ave Maria University
  • Harriet Warshaw, Executive Director, The Conversation Project
  • Amy Vandenbroucke, Executive Director, National Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment Paradigm Task Force
  • Gloria Ramsey, RN, Associate Professor, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
Unfortunately, there has been no movement on H.R. 1173 , the Personalize Your Care Act.  I recently praised this bill in "The New Patient Self Determination Act."
