Advanced Directives

An advanced directive is a document in which patients can explain the type and extent of health care services they prefer if they become unable to make medical decisions. The document may identify another person who can make those decisions on behalf of the individual. Such medical care could include routine treatments and life-saving methods. Advance directives are frequently called living wills.
