Position Description: End of life decisions are difficult for most families for a variety of reasons, including poor advance planning and complex family communications. Most people have little or no understanding of the end of life treatment options, advance care planning, life sustaining treatment and hospice. They are not aware of their healthcare rights and of the laws that protect them. There are major misconceptions about hospice, palliative care, advance directives, and patient rights. Additionally, demographic differences appear to play a role in end of life care. Ethnic minorities have lower rates of completing advance directives due to a lack of knowledge and understanding by the patient and family about the advance directive and communication challenges between patients and medical staff.

The need for information about existing programs and services is crucial to increase awareness, reduce misperceptions, and improve utilization, and alleviate disparities in care at the end of life.
