Advance Directives/Healthcare Decisions Coalition

You will find information in this section to help you complete an advance directive based on requirements under NH law. Also there is information to assist a person who is making health care decisions for another person and an explanation about Portable Do Not Resuscitate (P-DNR) medical orders and Provider Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) in NH.

In addition, this section contains information developed for health providers to address decision-making issues related to people with life threatening serious illness.  The NH Healthcare Decisions Coalition, originally established in 1998 as the NH Partnership for End-of-Life Care, is a volunteer inter-disciplinary group from organizations across the state.
