Advance Directives – Updating the Uniform Law Commission’s Health Care Decisions Act

This is Episode 2 of a two-part series on Advance Directives where host Stephanie Dorvil talks to Nathan Kottkamp of Williams Mullen in Richmond, VA,   who is a member of the ABA Post-Acute Care Continuum Task Force about recent proposals to update the Uniform Law Commission’s Health Care Decisions Act that prescribes minimum requirements for advance directives. Nathan, drawing from his extensive ethics and legal expertise, worked with the Uniform Law Commission to update this law to encourage more U.S. jurisdictions to adopt more realistic, implementable standards for these very important documents.
