The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (AMDA) strongly approves the move: “Post-acute and long-term care practitioners provide quality and thoughtful care and family members and friends of very ill patients will receive greater peace of mind that the care their loved ones receive is based on adequate medical information, collaborative goal setting, as well as respect for personal wishes and values in order to maximize comfort and quality of life,” said AMDA President Naushira Pandya, MD, CMD.
