Valley Medical Group
Valley Medical Group (VMG) is committed to supporting and educating our patients as they consider serious illness and end-of-life options for health care.
The VMG Advance Care Planning Committee is working to further this initiative. Goals include:
· Provide educational resources for patients about advance care decisions and options.
· Encourage the signing of Health Care Proxy forms beginning at age 18 and add completed forms into the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR).
· Introduce discussion about the MOLST at annual wellness visits beginning at age 65 or with chronic or life-threatening illness and add completed forms into the patient’s EMR.
· Support and educate primary care providers in the delivery of meaningful communication with their patients about serious illness and end-of-life decision-making.
