Palliative & Hospice Nursing : Advance Directives

What is an advance directive, really?

Advance directives are legal documents that allow you to spell out your decisions about end-of-life care ahead of time. They give you a way to tell your wishes to family, friends, and health care professionals and to avoid confusion later on. For more easy to read information regarding these documents, see Medlineplus.gov, Health Topics, Advance Directives.
