The general rule concerning healthcare decisions is that people 14 and over have the right to make their own choices. They’re free to accept or refuse any care offered to them. This is called “consent to care.” It is based on the principle of respect for people’s autonomy, integrity and control over their bodies.
Unfortunately, there could come a time when you’re not able to consent to care. However, you can make decisions before this happens so you have a say about your body and well-being. By expressing your wishes in advance, they will be respected.
