This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2327, "Making Health Care Decisions for Someone Else: Acting as a Substitute Decision Maker (SDM)". Sometimes a patient is not able to make decisions about their own health care. This may be because they are very sick or have been seriously injured. When this happens, another person is asked to make health care decisions for them. This person is called a substitute decision-maker. This pamphlet explains what to expect when you are asked to act as a substitute-decision-maker. A list of definitions is also provided.
