Advance Care Directive
Lets people know what health care treatments you'd like to have, or refuse, in case you cannot make decisions about your care and treatment.
An Advance Care Directive is a record of your wishes that informs people in advance what health care treatments you'd like to have, or refuse, if you're unable to make such decisions.
This could be due to incapacity following a serious illness or injury.
An Advance Care Directive:
- can only be made by adults who have capacity to make such decisions
- is separate to, but a complement to an Enduring Guardianship appointment
- includes details of what is important to you, such as your values, life goals and preferred outcomes
- outlines the treatments and care you would like or would refuse if you are in the later stages of a terminal illness.
