Communicating Your Health Care Choices

Questions about medical care at the end of life are very important because of the ability of medical technology to prolong life and because of highly publicized court cases involving comatose or dying patients. The best way for you to be in control of your medical treatment in such a situation is to record your preferences in an Advanced Directive.

At SGMC, we use the State of Georgia's Critical Conditions Planning Guide. By completing the steps outlined in this booklet, you can prepare yourself and loved ones to make these difficult decisions.
