Honoring Choices Minnesota Executive Summary


Honoring Choices Minnesota is a collaborative, community based initiative led by the Twin Cities Medical Society through its East Metro Foundation. The medical society is serving as the convener and coordinator of the initiative, utilizing its unique access to health care organizations and medical professionals. Beginning in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, Honoring Choices Minnesota's goal is to spur conversations about future health care preferences and to assist health care organizations and community partners with the installation of a comprehensive advance care planning program. A nationally recognized model is being used – Respecting Choices, based out of Gundersen Lutheran Health System in La Crosse, WI. Honoring Choices Minnesota uses the training, principles and overall methodology of Respecting Choices, with Minnesota-specific governance, forms and patient education materials. This effort has been a truly remarkable example of how interested parties can work together to provide better medical care for the patients of Minnesota.
