Abstract

In the state of Vermont we have an increasing senior population that is greater than the national average. with this increase comes a greater need to end of life care planning. Completion of advance directives in the primary care setting reduces costs in end of life care, but also reduces stress and anxiety for family members of the patient receiving care. To increase completion of advance directive patients and providers will be educated on advance care planning and informed of community resources that aid in completion of the many forms available to patients.
