anxiety, nausea, or constipation, limiting medical testing and providing (or not) spiritual and emotional counselling (see: https://bit.ly/2yNvjZT).
Other issues that can be considered in an advance directive include DNR directives, organ and tissue donation wishes and, in some jurisdictions, physician or medical ‘life sustaining treatment orders’. These orders are complementary to an existing advance health directives in that they give medical staff the direct authority and responsibility to provide or withhold certain types of treatment in an emergency situation. This might be especially important in relation to conditions such as COVID-19 where ‘normal’ sustaining end of life treatment may be likely to be futile.
Formwork, Registration & National Registries
As is perhaps expected in such a highly-evolved area of the law, advance health directives are normally completed using an official form or template. Forms can be obtained from local government agencies or advocacy groups. A quick search of the Internet will serve you well providing the appropriate form in your particular jurisdiction.
