Résumé/Citation: Allows persons over the age of 21 to make an advance medical directive indicating their wish not to be subjected to extraordinary life-sustaining treatments in the event of a terminal illness. Provides for medical practitioners' duties in such cases and relieves physicians of liability if medical treatment is withheld from a patient in accordance with the Act. Assures confidentiality of advance medical directives and makes it an offence to require such directives for the purposes of insurance policies. The Act shall not be interpreted as an authorization of euthanasia or mercy killing.
