Select to highlight:
Medical treatment for a current medical condition can be refused by signing a Refusal of Treatment Certificate (the certificate).
The certificate cannot be used to refuse palliative care: that is, reasonable pain relief, and food and water while the patient is still able to eat and drink.
The attached factsheets or other similar documents are provided on an as-is basis on behalf of the document authors. If you require any further information on the factsheets, please contact the factsheet authors, as credited on the factsheets themselves.
