Know Your Choices - Ask Your Doctor is a new campaign about helping patients be more informed about their care decisions. It incorporates three initiatives: the national Choosing Wisely® campaign, the WSMA's ER is for Emergencies campaign, and WSMA's end of life resources.
The WSMA has a special commitment to helping patients understand their options at the end of life. On the following pages you'll find information about how to protect your, or your loved one's, preferences for medical treatment at this difficult time in life, as well as efforts in communities across the state to improve end-of-life care.
