You can now get your Advance Medical Directive (AMD) witnessed and certified by doctors from Raffles Medical.
An AMD is a legal document. You sign it in advance to inform the doctor who is treating you (in the event that you become terminally ill and unconscious) that you do not want any extraordinary life-sustaining treatment to be used to prolong your life.
Extraordinary life-sustaining treatment is any medical treatment which serves only to prolong the process of dying for terminally ill patients but does not cure the illness.
