Care Decisions Connecticut was created by the Connecticut Hospital Association, in collaboration with healthcare partners across the continuum of care and state government.  The goal of Care Decisions Connecticut is to integrate patient-directed care strategies to improve palliative/hospice care and quality of life for persons in Connecticut with serious illnesses. 

The kickoff event, held on November 14, 2017, was co-sponsored by Aetna and the CT Association for Healthcare at Home.
