Refusal of Treatment Fact Sheet

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.
