Ensuring Clear Communication of Patient Wishes

In some cases an sudden injury or rapidly advancing illness can make it impossible for a patient to communicate their wishes regarding treatments and end-of-life care. Advance directives are legal documents that enable individuals to document and convey their decisions about how they are to be cared for. These directive provide clear directions for family, friends and health care professionals, helping to avoid confusion about the patients specific wishes.
