The Utah medical power of attorney form, also known as an ‘Advance Health Care Directive,’ consists of two parts; the Living Will, through which a principal can define the conditions under which they consent to receive certain types of life-prolonging/terminating medical treatments, and a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, where an agent can be named to make all health care decisions for the principal. A typical candidate for this role is a spouse, relative, or close friends. In Utah, the principal can’t opt for their primary care physician or many of the other individuals involved in their medical treatment unless they are relatives.
