Advance care planning among patients with cognitive disorders poses unique challenges to clinicians. To improve planning in patients with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, the researchers suggest a routine, standardized approach to these conversations. The main outcome measure is the rate of entry of Advance Directive completion in the patient's Electronic Health Record (EHR). A control group of similar patients from another provider specializing in cognitive disorders will be used to tease out confounding variable effects.
