Advance Care Planning/Hospital Policy Quiz

Are clinicians in your setting confused about …

  • How and when to activate and de-activate a Power of Attorney for Health Care (Durable Power of Attorney)?
  • Their responsibilities and protections in following wishes expressed in an Advance Care Planning document?
  • Know if your state has a surrogacy law for determining surrogate decision makers?
  • The rules regarding out of hospital DNR orders in your state?
  • If your state or hospital has a futility policy and how to use it?

To reduce confusion, PCNOW has developed a 10 item-quiz that can be used in all 50 states to a) assess clinician knowledge of relevant state laws and hospital policies and b) serve as a springboard for educating clinicians. 

Using the quiz:

  1. Test your own knowledge
  2. Include as part of the clinician credentialing and re-credentialing process
  3. New orientation for all new clinician hires
  4. Use as part of a clinician training session on advance care planning/medical ethics
