Advanced Health Care Directive
California law give you the ability to ensure that your health care wishes are known and considered if you become unable to make these decisions yourself. Completing a form called an “Advance Health Care Directive” allows you to do a number of things:
Appoint another person to be your health care “agent”
Delineate your health care wishes, such as:
- Health care instructions, including life support, organ and tissue donation
- Revoke prior directives
The sample form is above for reference. Acknowledgment before a notary public is not required if two qualified witnesses have signed this Directive in Part 5. In other words this is a free legally binding document.
Select "Centers, Institutes and More," then "Other Designation (specify below)" then type in "Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics."
