Advance Directive: what it can do for you
An Advance Directive gives individuals the opportunity to name a "Health Care Representative" to make health care decisions if the individual is incapable of making or communicating his or her own decisions. It also gives the opportunity to give binding health care instructions both to the Health Care Representative and to medical personnel as to what kind of health care the individual wishes. Both Canterbury Crest and the current Oregon Committee on Publication strongly encourage all Christian Scientists who might wish to limit or decline medical care to complete an Advance Directive as a protection to themselves and to family members who might otherwise be called on to make such decisions.
- While no one is required by law to have an Advance Directive, Oregon law requires Oregon residents to use the statutory form which is available on this website if the Advance Directive is to be valid and enforceable.
- An optional Addendum A is included with the download from this website. It is simply an example of language a Christian Scientist might use to request only Christian Science care and decline all medical care.
