Ensuring your wishes are met
Once you have chosen your healthcare champion and talked with him or her about your treatment preferences, it’s time to put your decisions in writing. Follow the steps below to document your wishes:
An advance directive is a legal document about your wishes for medical treatment that is used when you are not able to make your own medical decisions. You can use an advance directive to name someone to speak for you and to make your wishes known.
The documents and their requirements are different depending on the state you are in. Forms are available to print from this site. A Novant Health team member can help you complete your document at no cost to you.
