Can you give an advance medical directive for assisted dying?

Fri, 28 Aug, 2015

No. Some countries allow for advance medical directives, which are documents where a person records that he or she consents to receiving care that may be required at a future time where they are incapable of giving consent to medical treatment. Such a directive may also be used to nominate one or two persons to speak on the person’s behalf at a time where he or she is incapable of giving consent to medical treatment. This Bill, however, does not provide for advance medical directives.
