Advance health-care directives instructions are given by individuals specifying what actions should be taken for their health in the event that they are no longer able to make decisions due to illness or incapacity.
That’s why Franciscan St. Francis Health is helping lead and coordinate efforts to educate the public about the importance of having advance health-care directives.
From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, April 16, information stations will be set up at Franciscan St. Francis hospitals in
The events coincide with the National Health Care Decisions Day, designed to raise awareness about the importance of advance care planning.
