Practice Area Overview:
Making an Advance Care Directive (ACD) allows you to plan for your future care should you lose the capacity to consent to or refuse medical treatment.
An ACD provides you the ability to record your values for your medical treatment in the form of a legal document and make legally binding statements, which are directed to your health practitioners in which you consent to or refuse specific future medical treatment.
Give yourself confidence by knowing that if you have lost capacity to accept or refuse medical treatment, your health practitioner must make reasonable efforts to find out whether you have made an ACD and if so, comply with your instructional directive contained therein.
You also have the option of uploading a copy of your Advance Care Directive to your My Heath Record if you wish. That way it’s available to your treating doctors if ever needed.
