Advance care directives are legal documents that explain your wishes about medical care to your loved ones and healthcare team in case you’re unable to speak for yourself. Creating clear instructions ahead of time ensures your values are respected during a medical crisis or end-of-life care.
Your advance care directive can include the following documents:
This form does not replace your other directives. Instead, it serves as doctor-ordered instructions — not unlike a prescription — to ensure that, in case of an emergency, you receive the treatment you prefer. It can include orders to avoid CPR or intubation. A MOLST, typically bright pink in color, stays with you and is posted near your bed or prominently displayed where emergency personnel or other medical team members can easily find it.

The best time to create an advance directive is before you are sick — when you have a clear understanding about your options and can communicate them to your loved ones and your doctor.
You should select a trusted individual, willing and able to accept this responsibility who will follow your values and instructions.
Having a conversation about advanced care planning can be uncomfortable. You can ease into the discussion by saying, “I know that this isn’t easy to talk about, but if I get sick or have an accident — and can’t make medical decisions for myself — I’d like to share what would be important to me, so you could be my decision maker.”
COMMUNICATE: Talk to your loved ones and your healthcare team about your choices.
DOCUMENT: Work with the team to complete appropriate forms that honor your decisions.
SHARE: Place copies of forms in a visible location at home and provide a copy to your loved ones and your designated healthcare agent.
