Life threatening illnesses, such as COVID-19, bring to the forefront the importance of advance care planning. Advance care planning can help ensure that individuals’ health care decisions are respected and honored. Some core issues to keep in mind for advance care planning during the COVID-19 pandemic are having the conversation that identifies a person’s values, beliefs, goals, and treatment preferences. Clinicians and patients should also consider issues that have evolved as a result of COVID as they prepare advance care planning documents – including advance directives, such as the health care proxy, and medical orders, such as MOLST or eMOLST. The particular benefits or eMOLST will also be discussed and a case study from a SNF system that uses eMOLST will be shared.
