What is an Advance Health Care Directive?

  • By: Lorilee Desantis
  • Published: August 21, 2020

An Advance Health Care Directive is a document which (1) authorizes another person to make medical decisions for you in the event you are unable to make your own decisions and (2) identifies the types of medical treatment preferences and end-of-life decisions you would want made on your behalf. For example, an Advance Health Care Directive can be used to specify under what circumstances (if any) you want to receive pain medications or be on life support.
