An advance directive is a care option for a client that allows him to make decisions before he is unable to do so. The nurse may take part in helping a client to develop an advance directive. The nurse would need to ensure that the client has the necessary information to make a decision, and she should tell the client where the information will be stored so that staff will be properly informed about his directives.
