The individual may make his preference known through the use of an advance directive, which is a written instruction prepared in advance, such as a living will or durable power of attorney. This information is documented in a prominent part of the individual’s medical record. Advance directives as described in the Patient SelfDetermination Act (enacted in 1991) have increased the individual’s control over decisions concerning medical treatment. The advance directives requirement was enacted because Congress wanted individuals to know that they have a right to make health care decisions and to refuse treatment even when they are unable to communicate.; Frequency: On occasion; Affected Public: Business or other forprofit; Number of Respondents: 33,096; Total Annual Responses: 33,096; Total Annual Hours: 924,120.
