Are you interested in advocating for a better public understanding of advance care planning with NHDD? 

NHDD is a very open and collaborative movement. We would be honored for you to join us!  Below are the themes we plan to focus on this year.

At the bottom of this page are links to put your pledge on our map and distribution list. Please contact NHDD if you have questions.    

Themes for NHDD Week 2018:

Monday (4/16): NHDD/Prepare

Host your main event, since it’s NHDD, or use it as a day to get resources together!

Tuesday (4/17): Start with Yourself

A day to think about your own healthcare decisions

Wednesday (4/18): Family/Friends/Loved Ones

A day to discuss your wishes with others (and learn their wishes) 

Thursday (4/19): Spread the Word

A day to tell others that you've engaged in advance care planning and encourage them to do the same

Friday (4/20): Facilities Focus

A day for healthcare providers of all sorts to promote advance care planning

Saturday (4/21): Professionals Preparedness

A day to ensure that all professionals (healthcare, clergy, legal, and others) understand and can promote advance care planning

Sunday (4/22): Reflection and Readiness

Consider what worked well for NHDD week and file or share your advance care plans so they will be available if needed. 


What does it mean to participate?

Anyone that hosts a NHDD community education event, large or small can be an official participant of National Healthcare Decisions Day/Week.

What does it mean to become a NHDD state liaison?

This means you are going to go above and beyond! Liaisons are resource leaders in their states and are expected to participate in NHDD at a higher level. We want you to take the lead on organizing others in your state or region around National Healthcare Decisions Day/Week. You would help individuals plan activities and coordinate with other liaisons across the country to share ideas and collaborate. 

See our suggested activities for state liaisons.
