What is a Directive to Physicians (Living Will)?

A directive to physicians is also known as a “Living Will.”  This is a statement of your wishes regarding life-sustaining medical intervention. This is used in the event you are unable to communicate and have become terminally ill, or suffering from an irreversible condition.

Having a directive to physicians is the only way to have a say as to whether you want life support.
