Oregon Advance Directive Form (Medical POA + Living Will)

An Oregon advance directive is a legal document in which an individual may specify a healthcare agent and intended medical wishes to become active at a future date if the individual were to be faced with a medical event during which they cannot make their own decisions. The documents allow medical personnel to tailor the individual’s end-of-life healthcare to their written wishes. Principals are only deemed incapacitated by medical professionals.
