Utah Weekly Forum with Rebecca Cressman

Why Every Adult Should Have an Advance Directive

Many people during the COVID-19 pandemic were suddenly faced with making vital decisions about their healthcare. Yet, some patients were too seriously ill to make those choices themselves. Since medical emergencies can happen at any time, every adult should put their future healthcare decisions in writing so loved ones and providers can know what kind of care they’d want. In this episode of Utah Weekly Forum, FM100.3’s Rebecca Cressman discusses how to make advance directives that reflect your wishes for the future with┬áDr. Dominic Moore, medical director of palliative care at Intermountain Healthcare and a pediatric palliative care physician with University of Utah Health. Advance care planning forms and info can be found at Intermountainhealthcare.org.
