Advance Directives (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
The best place for information on advance directives is to start with your family doctor. Your doctor is able to discuss your medical condition, treatment options, and procedures, as well as outline what would happen in certain situations. Your doctor should also be able to supply you with the necessary paperwork to properly complete an advance directive.
