There are many reasons why you would wish to draw up a Living Will (Advance Directive):
- To allow individuals to refuse any specific treatments, e.g. for religious or cultural reasons – blood transfusions
- To Decide if you would want to be resuscitated or placed on life support
- To Decide whether to receive specific invasive therapies, e.g. intravenous therapies
- To Decide whether you would wish to be artificially fed
Advance Directives (Living Wills) cannot be used for reasons which would result in doctors violating their ethical code of conduct, e.g.
- Asking for your life to be ended
- Forcing doctors to act against their professional judgement
- Nominating someone else to decide about treatment on your behalf – unless you have prepared a Health and Welfare LPA
It is imperative that an Advance Directive is written clearly so that there is no confusion when end of life circumstances arrive.
At LCS we are fully qualified and experienced in the drafting of Advance Directives and can offer appropriate advice to anyone considering this service.
Anyone instructing us to prepare an Advance Directive for them will be advised to discuss their documents with their family members and GP so that their decision may be recorded on their medical notes and taken in to consideration in the event of an emergency.
