In the latest column by UTMB’s Dr. Victor S. Sierpina: End-of-life planning can be thought of in the same genre as drawing up a will or financial planning for retirement. At UTMB Health Family Medicine, we have started an initiative to increase the number of such discussions with our patients in our three clinics. We are doing this by educating our doctors, having posters in the exam room encouraging patients to inquire about end-of-life directives and putting the forms online in MyChart where they are easily retrievable and printable.
