Goals are best reflected through advance directives

The goals section on the latest version seems too vague to me to be of use to clinicians and others accessing a patient's records. Instead, the previous Advance Directive section, that included 6 elements including information on the medical power of attorney and other aspects of a pertson's goals and preferences would be better to include. As a practicing palliative care nurse practitioner, I include a section on the patient's goals in my notes, but this is not the case for the other clinicians in my hospital. Adoption of Advance Directives should be considered in USCDI V2.
