Hawaii Advance Health Care Directive (Medical POA)

The Hawaii Advance Health Care Directive (Medical Power of Attorney) allows an individual to state their end-of-life wishes should they one day be unable to convey them themselves. Advancements in medical technology mean that it is now possible for anyone to take advantage of life-sustaining treatments and other innovative medical solutions. An individual can use an Advance Health Care Directive to indicate whether or not they wish for health care professionals to use such treatments should they become incapacitated in the future.
