During this daylight presentation of its annual Halloween event, the University of Hawai`i Elder Law Program (UHELP) will present a talk about medical treatment decision-making and advance care planning to include informed consent/informed refusal, individual instructions for health care, durable powers of attorney for health care, comfort care only-DNR bracelets/necklaces and Provider Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST).

You will have the opportunity to "Decide What If?" you are unable to communicate your wishes for end of life care. If you still have an old “Living Will” or if you are unsure of how end-of-life decisions will be made for you, come and find out how to make an advance directive or other documents that will help make sure your wishes regarding health care decisions are honored. The public, especially kupuna, family caregivers, service providers, students and faculty are invited. Tea and little treats will be served. Donations to cover the cost of this hydration and nutrition accepted. The William S. Richardson School of Law Library is located at 2525 Dole Street at UH Manoa. Parking is available in the parking structure for $5.
