Use of the ‘Go Wish’ Cards in Persons with Early Stage Alzheimer's Disease

Sponsorship Type: Non-Funded
Research Type: Human Subjects
Impact: National

The concept that a discussion of the patient's goals and values should precede any discussion of specific treatment choices when considering end-of-life care is becoming increasing well accepted. Recently, a new device, the "Go Wish" cards, has been developed as a way for patients and their families to identify and record their goals and values. This project explored the use of "Go Wish" cards in a diverse older adult population.
