Psychiatric advance directives concept to practice: a Virginia case study

Advance directives have evolved over the last several decades to become much more holistic tools that can contribute to wellness and recovery. In Virginia, changes were made to the advance directive laws to include mental health care among the domains of health covered in one’s advance directive. The legislative changes served as a springboard for a statewide effort to implement advance directives into routine mental health care practice. The project has led to many lessons in how to implement advance directives, which bridge communication gaps, coordinate care across providers, and strengthen health care recipients’ voices in their care. This course provides information about the Virginia context and experience in implementing advance directives, including advance directive basics and key components of implementation. The presenter of this webinar is Heather Zelle, J.D., Ph.D., post-doctoral research associate, University of Virginia’s Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy.
