Why use medical directives

When assessing or treating patients, the competent health-care provider needs to perform:

  • a controlled act, or another act that is traditionally held within medicine (e.g, prescribing medications, ordering labs…)
  • AND the act is not authorized to the health care professionals' scope of practice.

Whose needs are being met?

  • Medical Directives should always be patient centred.
  • The procedure being directed or delegated is clinically appropriate and in the patient’s best interest.
  • Medical Directives are created in order to facilitate care.
