What is an Advance Care Directive?


An Advance Care Directive allows you to inform health professionals, family and friends of your healthcare wishes should you become unable to make or communicate such decisions. This includes medical treatments you would like or refuse should you be in a position to require them, along with your values and preferred outcomes.

For example: an advance care directive is a document which is used to set out your instructions and wishes regarding your medical treatment if you are no longer able to make those decisions.
