The West Virginia Center for End-of-Life Care through the WV Health Information Network established the WV e-Directive Registry. With the permission of patients or their legal agents, this electronic Registry houses and makes available to treating health care providers West Virginians’ advance directive forms, do not resuscitate (DNR) cards, and Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) forms.  The Registry makes patients’ treatment wishes known to their physicians so that they can be respected.
