After I Complete An Advance Directive, Can I Revoke It?

Yes. You can revoke your living will or appointment of a health care agent at any time, either orally or in writing and remember to tell your physician and others who have copies of your advance directive. To revoke your designation of a conservator, you can do so either in writing, by destroying the document or by making a new designation that states that earlier designations are revoked. It is advisable to put any revocation in writing.
