 Advance Directives
An Advance Directive is a written document in which the patient specifies who they want to make medical decisions for them (a Patient Advocate) should they lose the ability to make decisions for themselves. The patient can also specify their wishes regarding consent to or refusal of medical treatments and services. Patients can also solicit the advice of a legal professional and should do so if they have questions outside of the FAQs provided. The main message is that the HCPOA empowers patients to help ensure their wishes are honored and assists the family during difficult times.
