Resources and Education

ADVANCE DIRECTIVES

Directive to Physicians - also known as a living will.  These are written instructions that explain your wishes for health care if you are unable to communicate your wishes.  For example, you can limit certain life-prolonging measures when there is little or no chance of recovery.

Medical Power of Attorney - names a person to make medical decisions for you if you become unable to do so .

Out of Hospital Do Not Resuscitate Order (DNR) - if a health crisis occurs and EMS is called, the paramedics are generally required to resuscitate and stabilize patients before they are brought to a hospital.  A DNR will allow EMS personnel to refrain from doing so.

Click on National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization & go to Caring Connections Directives for additional information and states by state forms and instructions
