Only 22% of Oklahomans have an advance directive. Because of this, Clarehouse is leading Tulsa Healthcare Decisions Day, a local effort to highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making and encourage the public to take action by documenting their healthcare wishes and engaging in conversations with family and friends.
On National Healthcare Decisions Day, April 16 at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Clarehouse invites the public to join THDD virtually via Zoom. The program will feature Your Voice. Your Wishes. Your Advance Directive., a video guide to the Oklahoma Advance Directive for Healthcare, followed by a teaching session and Q&A with local experts. These sessions will be repeated in the coming weeks on April 23 and 30. The event is free and open to the public.
Tulsa Healthcare Decisions Day is inspired by National Healthcare Decisions Day–a nationwide movement created to inspire, educate and empower the public and healthcare providers about the importance of advance care planning–and is presented in community partnership with North Regional Health and Wellness Clinic, Magic City Books, Oklahoma Methodist Manor, Martin Regional Library, Zarrow Regional Library, All Souls Unitarian Church and Asbury United Methodist Church and Creative Planning.
