A living will is a legal document that a person uses to make known his or her wishes regarding life prolonging medical treatments. It can also be referred to as an advance directive, health care directive, or a physician’s directive. A living will usually provides specific directives regarding the course of treatment that is to be followed by health care providers and caregivers. In some instances, a living will may forbid the use of various kinds of burdensome medical treatment. It may also be used to express wishes about the use or foregoing of food and water, if supplied by tubes or other medical devices. The living will is used only if the individual has become unable to give informed consent or refusal due to incapacity.
