What are advance directives?

Advance directives are legal documents that enable people to speak about the kinds of medical treatments they might want at some future date when they are no longer able to speak directly for their treatment preferences, most often because of physical incapacity. Read here about how I completed my own advance directive—and lived to tell the tale—at the website of National Health Care Decisions Day an organization that seeks to inspire, educate and empower people about the importance of advance care planning.
