1. Considerable living will:
The physician SHOULD adhere to a considerable living will! You have the possibility to create a considerable living will. This does not require a verifiable informed consent from a physician and legal professional. (a medical clearing-up discussion should take place nevertheless).
2. binding living will (recommended):
The physician MUST adhere to a binding living will. In this form, all rejected measures must be specifically described. There must be evidence of a comprehensive medical explanation. Further, your signature must be given before a lawyer, who thereby confirms the correctness. This type of living will remains binding for 5 years and must then be reconfirmed, otherwise it will be converted into a considerable living will.
A living will can be revoked by you at any time!
