Health care decisions at the end of life may include decisions that must be made when a person becomes incapacitated and unable to make decisions for themselves. Oregon law requires that “living wills” and “durable powers of attorney” for health care decisions must be set forth on a standard form called an advance directive. Oregon Right to Life recommends that an advance directive is used to appoint a trusted person to be the one to make those decisions for the patient if he/she becomes incapacitated. Due to the removal of legal protections from Oregon law, we recommend that Oregonians fill out the advance directive below. The advance directive incorporates that the presumption should be for life.

Setup Advance Directive with Conclusions Oregon

Make sure your physician, your health care representative, and you have copies of the completed document.

Oregon Right to Life cannot provide you with legal advice. If you have questions when filling out an advance directive, please contact an attorney.
