How can we get lawyers to change the way they do incapacitation planning?

Frequently, I have a conversation with someone about the importance of advance medical care planning and the person responds back to me, “Oh, I’ve done that. I’ve been to my lawyer and filled out ‘those forms’ in their office.” Somehow, people feel like doing medical planning with a lawyer is an appropriate thing to do! (See Figure). On the other hand, somehow, lawyers feel legitimized to develop such medical plans with their clients, does this seem right to you? To me, this doesn’t make much sense. Recently, I wrote a blog and published it on a popular legal website in an attempt to engage the legal community to change the way they interact with their clients with respect to advance medical care planning. Check out the blog here.
