Advance Directives

NHPCA devotes much of its time educating Nebraskans on the importance of completing advance directives.  Initiatives like the formation of community end-of-life coalitions across the state, outreach campaigns, and the placement of articles in consumer and professional publications have contributed to growth in the number of Nebraskans with an advance directive. Thirty-seven percent of Nebraskans report having an advance directive.

Talking with family members and others in your life about your end-of-life wishes, coupled with an advance directive, can significantly ease the burden on those who must make health care decisions for you. Regardless of your age, we hope you will use the tools we provide you to have these important conversations with the people in your life and formally document your wishes in an advance directive.
