At every stage of life—from birth and adolescence to adulthood and old age—doctors guide the health and well-being of their patients.

March 30 is designated every year as National Doctors Day, and VITAS Healthcare offers a simple and heartfelt message: “Thank you for making a difference.”

One of physicians’ most important tasks is instilling trust so that patients can make the best healthcare decisions for themselves and their families, in both ordinary times and at times of crisis.

VITAS is proud to partner with some of the nation’s finest doctors, physicians’ groups and academic medical centers. As the end of life nears, these partners guide and inform their patients about:

  • Options for care
  • The importance of documenting their care-related preferences
  • The value of making their care-related wishes known to others

These professionals understand and embrace the continuum of care. Thank you, physicians and doctors, for promoting quality of life at the end of life.

Having end-of-life discussions with your patients is a skill that can be learned.
