The Arizona advance directive is a combination of a medical power of attorney and a living will that provides a person (the “principal”) with end-of-life health care options. The medical power of attorney authorizes an agent to make health care decisions on the principal’s behalf if they cannot do so themselves. A living will allows the principal to record instructions for the administration of medical treatments, life-sustaining procedures, and medication.
