Advanced Care Planning

The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center’s Cancer Center is committed to assisting patients and families in planning for future health care decisions. Planning can be challenging, so it’s important to speak openly about facing decisions that have significant impact on how you live your life. This can be a time for profound personal growth and to reevaluate what is truly important in one’s life.

The Oncology Support Team can be instrumental in facilitating these discussions which may involve advanced directives for children, adolescents and adults as well as discussing the role of having a Power of Attorney. Hospice support is also available in your home as well as in-patient support.
