The goal of North Texas Respecting Choices is to motivate patients to engage in conversations with their loved ones and health care providers about end-of-life care planning. This is accomplished by helping patients:

  1. Think about the type of treatment they would like at the end of their life
  2. Start the conversation with their loved ones
  3. Formally document their decisions

North Texas Respecting Choices is an initiative led by North Texas Specialty Physicians (NTSP) (external site), an Independent Physician Association compromised of 600 family and specialty doctors who are dedicated to providing the best medical care to more than 75,000 patients across North Central Texas.
