Helping Texans prepare for end-of-life decisions is an important community service of Texas hospitals.  Lack of objective public education about the laws and processes governing end-of-life choices and the importance of individuals making clear their own health care decisions result in public and legislative misperceptions. The Texas Hospital Association has produced a suite of products to help member hospitals understand and communicate on end-of-life issues.

In addition, THA tracks related legislation and regulatory activity to keep members informed.
