directive is a document by which a person makes provision for health care
decisions in the event that, in the future, he/she becomes unable to make those
two main types of advance directive — the “Living Will” and the “Durable Power
of Attorney for Health Care.” There are also hybrid documents which combine
elements of the Living Will with those of the Durable Power of Attorney.
Students can get help with creating an Advanced Directive
through Student Legal Services. Student Legal Services charges $50 for this
type of consultation/assistance and students can make an appointment via their website, or by calling the office at (310)-825-9894.
If you chose to complete an Advanced Directive, please
provide both the Ashe and UCLA
Health medical records departments with a copy of the document so it can be
added to your chart in both locations.
For more information on Advance Directives, please
refer to the State of California Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney
General resource page and FAQs.
