Honoring Choices and
The Conversation Project

Advance Directives Tennessee supports the national  Honoring Choices
movement that began in 2008 and was led by the Twin Cities Medical Society and its Foundation.

Honoring Choices is based on the training, principles and overall methodology of Respecting Choices , the nationally and internationally recognized Advance Care Planning model developed by Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, WI. This effort has grown into a movement and is a truly remarkable example of how both health care and non-health care organizations can work together to provide better medical care for Americans.
Advance Directives Tennessee also supports The Conversation Project, a national movement that began in 2010 when Ellen Goodman and a group of colleagues and concerned media, clergy, and medical professionals gathered to share stories of “good deaths” and “bad deaths” within their own circle of loved ones.  The Conversation Project joined forces with National Healthcare Decisions Day and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to emphasize planning.
