New NASW Practice Alert: COVID-19 Advance Care Planning in Health Care Practice
Carrie Dorn, MPA, LMSW NASW Senior Practice Associate
Every year, NASW celebrates National Healthcare Decisions Day to empower individuals to engage in advance care planning (ACP). As individuals, families, and communities face the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of conversations about health care treatment preferences comes into new focus. During this public health emergency, health care social workers have a crucial role in communicating pertinent health information to family members and loved ones and advocating on behalf of patients in health settings.
