An Advance Decision (formerly known as a Living Will) is a legal document. It allows you to refuse life-sustaining treatment should you no longer be able to communicate your wishes.
An Advance Decision allows you to:
- make choices about the level of medical treatment that you receive if you suffer from a life-threatening illness or condition in the future,
- appoint somebody to take part in medical decisions on your behalf should you become unable to do so.
- make statements about the treatment that should be delivered, for consideration by those delivering it.
