The Health Care Directives Act allows you to express your wishes about the amount and type of health care and treatment you want to receive should you be unable to communicate your wishes. Use the icon to the left to access a printable form that you can fill out at your convenience and discuss with your doctor.
The Patient Advocate Form is a tool developed by the Institute’s Patient Advisory Committee. Its purpose is to help people name a person(s) who can advocate or speak up and act on their behalf. The form can be printed, filled out and returned to your doctor’s office.
It also provides some frequently asked questions and answers about what a patient advocate is, why use one, tips on selecting an advocate, and the difference between a patient advocate and a health care proxy. The form includes a checklist of tasks a person, as a patient, may want an advocate to do. The intent of this form is as an example to assist the public in expressing their wishes and is not intended to represent professional advice.
