What kind of medical care would you want if you get too ill to express your wishes? Decisions about end of life care are difficult even when people are well. If a person is seriously ill, these decisions can seem overwhelming. Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to communicate your wishes to family, friends and healthcare professionals, and avoid confussion later on. You don’t have to have a terminal illness to express your end of life care wishes in writing.
In 2013, UAMS West was recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Care facility (the highest level). In addition, our facility as a whole and two faculty members – Dr. Katherine Irish-Clardy and Dr. Elisa Spradlin, have been recognized by the NCQA for Quality Care in Diabetes.
