Subject: Focus Group Discussion on Simplification of Advanced Medical Directive (AMD) Form

Dear Friends,

As part of MOH’s efforts to improve palliative care for the terminally ill, the Ministry will be reviewing the Advance Medical Directive (AMD). An Advance Medical Directive (AMD) is a legal document that one signs in advance to inform the doctor that one does not want any extraordinary life-sustaining treatment to be used to prolong one’s life, in the event that one becomes terminally ill and unconscious.

An AMD is an important part of planning for the end-of-life process because timely discussion and planning will help ensure that the patient’s wishes are respected in a dignified and humane way. The public can make an AMD by filling in an AMD form, signed in the presence of two witnesses, and returning it to the Registrar of AMDs.

MOH is currently working on simplifying the form and will be organising a focus group discussion with REACH to find out how it can further simplify the form and hence the application process.

More information on AMD and the current form can be found at the following link: http://www.moh.gov.sg/mohcorp/publicationseduresources.aspx?id=20138

We would like to invite you to the focus group discussion. The details are as follows. Date / Time Venue
15 January 09, 7.30pm – 9.00 pm

Registration & Refreshments at 7.00pm Private Room, Grassroots Club 190 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8 Singapore 569045

If you would like to attend the session above, please fill in the reply slip attached and return it to us by 8 January 2008.
(See attached file: AMD- Reply (Mandarin).doc)
We look forward to your keen participation. Please contact Ms Sia Yoke Leng at sia_yoke_leng@mcys.gov.sg if you have any queries.

Thank you and regards,

REACH
