Life-Affirming Medical Proxy Document (LAMP)

Due to numerous calls from people seeking our help to obtain a medical power of attorney (a.k.a. a durable power of attorney for health care) in emergency situations, the Healthcare Advocacy and Leadership Organization (HALO) has developed the LAMP document. It can be readily downloaded when a person, who has not previously completed a life-affirming medical power of attorney, is about to undergo emergency surgery, has been seriously injured, etc.  Download the LAMP document by clicking here

Consider the Life-Affirming Principles for Medical Decision-Making when evaluating completion of LAMP or any other durable power of attorney for health care.
