Medical Directives

A medical directive is given in advance by a physician or nurse practitioner to enable an implementer to perform an act/procedure, under specific conditions, without a direct assessment by the physician/nurse practitioner.  Medical Directives facilitate inter-professional care, protect the public, assure competence, establish authority, uphold accountability and enable evolution.
