  1. Making an advance directive.

    Article - En anglais

    The introduction in Britain of advance directiveswhich allow a person to state in advance ofbecoming incompetent that they wish to take part in treatment decisions when no longer mentally competent-has now been advocated by the medical and legal establishments.

    The practical application of directives relating to health care would be simplified by the adoption of a standard model document together with guidelines suminarising the background clinical conditions and any subsequent acute events that may make it appropriate to trigger the use of a directive.

    As no specific legislation exists, good communication is needed at the various stages between the drafting and implementation of directives if the system of directives is to be successful.
