What to Do in the Event of Death.

Advance Medical Directives

Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux

Advance medical directives allow you to state in advance whether you agree or refuse to receive end-of-life medical care in the event where you do not have the capacity to consent to care at a given time.


Your decision in this regard may be recorded in the Quebec Advance Medical Directives Registry or in your medical file.
