What is an advance directive?
An advance directive is a written or oral statement about how you want medical decisions made should you not be able to make them yourself and/or it can express your wish to make an anatomical donation after death. Some people make advance directives when they are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Others put their wishes into writing while they are healthy, often as part of their estate planning.
Three types of advance directives are:
- Living Will
- Health Care Surrogate Designation
- Anatomical Donation
