Completing advance directives


Advance wishes are instructions that an adult, with sufficient capacity and freely, addresses to his or her responsible doctor, so that he or she takes them into account when that person is in a situation where the circumstances do not allow him to express his will personally.


They are therefore a way of expressing the autonomy of people when deciding in relation to their own health, which is an ethically and legally endorsed right.

With this document:

  • The patients' personal decisions are respected
  • It increases the security of professionals when respecting these decisions

In addition, the support of professionals in the preparation of the document improves the assistance that will be provided in certain circumstances and strengthens the relationship between patients and the professionals who attend to them.
