An Advanced Health Care Directive (or Living Will) is a document which sets out your preferences for medical treatment, it will:

  1. Set out limitations on treatment you wish to have
  2. Stipulate medical treatment preferences
  3. Identify circumstances unacceptable to you arising from applying life-sustaining treatment
  4. Identify how far treatment should go when your condition is classed as ‘terminal’ or ‘incurable’
  5. Nominate a person to consult with doctors concerning your wishes
