What Is A Virginia Advance Medical Directive?

A Virginia  Advance Medical Directive is similar to a Living Will in that it allows you to state your wishes concerning life prolonging treatment in the event you are terminally ill, death is imminent, and the medical procedures serve only to artificially prolong the dying process. However, a Virginia Advance Medical Directive, unlike a Living Will, also allows you to express your wishes regarding medical treatment in situations other than a terminal illness where death is not imminent such as when you are in a vegetative state or in a coma with no likelihood of recovery, or when the quality of your life has greatly diminished .
