Trusted Decision Maker

Trusted Decision Maker

Dr. Ira Byock, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of the Providence Institute for Human Caring, discusses a new vision for advance care planning that simply asks individuals to name a trusted decision- maker to speak for them in the event they're not able to speak for themselves. This choice is then entered into the electronic health record by a care provider. Joining Dr. Byock are Edo Banach, President and CEO of the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, and Nathan Kottkamp, founder of the National Healthcare decisions Day.
