Lead by Example: Post your advance directives
The Medical Society of Virginia (MSV) invites you to join us in the 2012 Lead by Example campaign. Virginians deserve to have their medical wishes carried out when they are unable to speak for themselves. MSV challenges you, Virginia’s health care community, to lead the way in using the new online statewide advance directive registry by posting your own advance directives to the secure site.
We are encouraging everyone to participate in this challenge! Please take a few moments to lead the way for your staff, patients, family and friends by uploading your health care advance directive and encouraging them to do the same.
to create a new account where you can securely store your care planning documents. If you do not have an advance health care directive, you can download a blank form here
