for patients and families

For Patients & Families

Completing advance directives is the loving thing to do. Advance directives tell your family what treatments you want when you are too sick to tell them yourself.

for healthcare providers

For Healthcare Providers

Research shows that patients want their physicians to talk to them about end-of-life care treatment options. We provide resources to facilitate that conversation.

What is the
e-Directive Registry?

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.
