For example, what might you want your family and medical team to know about your goals of care? What is important to you, in how you live your life? What aspects of life and health are your key priorities?
For example, suppose you and your other family members disagree about a decision that must be made for someone else. Or, suppose you and your doctor disagree about appropriate treatment and care for you. Are you able to resolve those conflicts?
For example, do you ever leave a conversation with your doctor, or members of your medical care team, with unanswered questions or unvoiced concerns? How can you better plan and manage important medical communications?
