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.

Each year on National Healthcare Decisions Day, April 16,  Clarehouse invites the public to join THDD. The program features 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. The event is free and open to the public. In 2020, due to COVID-19 we featured Tulsa Healthcare Decisions Day on Zoom. In 2021, we hope to partner with community partners to provide an in-person, city-wide event.

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. Our 2020 partners were North Regional Health and Wellness Clinic, Magic City Books, Oklahoma Methodist Manor, Martin Regional Library, Zarrow Regional Library, All Souls Unitarian Church, Asbury United Methodist Church and Creative Planning.
