A Tennessee advance directive is a document used to make health care planning designations to inform medical staff on how to treat a person. An advance directive allows health planning by choosing an agent, selecting medical care, organ donation, and post-death instructions. Once the form has been signed by either two (2) witnesses or a notary public it can be used upon the incapacitation of the person.
