This FHIR profile is based on version 1.0.1 of the building block Advance Directive. The latest version of this building block can be found here on the wiki.


An advance directive is a verbal or written description of the patient’s wishes with regard to future medical action or end of their life. An advance directive is mainly used for situations in which the patient is no longer able to speak about these decisions with their healthcare provider.


A good overview of the patient’s wishes is important. A healthcare provider can use the advance directive to discuss the existing wishes with the persons involved and to incorporate these wishes in their own policy. A concise, orderly list is of particular importance in acute care situations.
