    (3 min read)

    Nurses impact patient care and make a difference in peoples’ lives every single day. As front-line caregivers, they advocate for their patients and use evidence-based practices to promote optimal outcomes. Many provide skilled care and comfort for patients and their families at the end of life. Nurses are the ones always present at the bedside, treating patients with compassion and attentiveness – earning trust every step of the way. So it comes as no surprise that nursing has been rated as the most ethical and honest profession in the U.S. for nearly two decades.

    The Vital Role of Community-Centered Care During a Pandemic

    (3 min read)

    The COVID-19 pandemic tested the limits of healthcare systems worldwide. In May 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) published a guide to help countries strengthen the resilience of community-based health services throughout the pandemic and beyond. The organization acknowledged that community-based healthcare is “an essential part of primary care at all times; in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the distinct capacity of trusted community members for social engagement and delivering care where it is needed is ever more critical.”


    The Latest Technology Platform Fixes & Enhancements

    📣🌟New Feature: ACP Decisions Quick Start🌟📣

    Are your clinicians too busy to login to the system to view content or prescribe codes? 

    ACP Decisions Quick Start was inspired by the desire to make it as easy as possible to share information with your patients during the pandemic and beyond. We do this by providing pre-made codes that are accessible via simple links. Because the codes are pre-made, clinicians do not need to access the platform to view or share content. The same links can be shared with multiple patients and clinicians. 

    More details about this feature can be found in your email inbox with subject: Tackle Vaccine Hesitancy using the *New* ACP Decisions Quick Start on April 16th. If you're interested in enabling this feature for your organization for any of the videos in our video collection, please contact support@acpdecisions.org.

    🌟📣Design Update: Patients Instructions🌟📣

    The patient instructions got a makeover and are now simpler and easier to follow. Here's what your patients can now expect to see:

    🌟📣Improvements to iOS Share Directions🌟📣

    We updated the Share Directions feature in the ACP Tools iOS app to send a string of text instead of a PDF in order to support more share types like text messaging. Read here for more information about how to share directions from the iOS app.

    Be sure to check with your IS team about the resources and protocols in place at your organization for sharing details with patients electronically before using these features.
