advance directive

What is an advance directive?

An advance directive is a document in which a person indicates what actions should be taken on his or her behalf in the event that he or she is physically or mentally unable to make medical decisions.

An advance directive can include specific treatments that you do or do not want, and it can also designate a person to make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to make your own medical decisions.
