Advance Healthcare Directives: Public Consultation on Draft General Scheme for Advance Healthcare Directives for Incorporation into the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Bill 2013

Advance Healthcare Directives (AHD – sometimes referred to as living wills) are statements made by competent adults setting out their wishes in relation to the type and extent of medical treatments they would or would not want to receive in anticipation of future incapacity to make decisions. A prerequisite to making a valid advance healthcare directive is that the individual making one is an adult and that s/he has capacity.
