The justification for advance directives is grounded in the notion that they extend patient autonomy into future states of incompetency through patient participation in decision making about end-of-life care. Four objections challenge the necessity and sufficiency of individual autonomy, perceived to be a defining feature of liberal philosophical theory, as a basis of advance care planning. These objections are that the liberal concept of autonomy (i) implies a misconception of the individual self, (ii) entails the denial of values of social justice, (iii) does not account for justifiable acts of paternalism, and (iv) does not account for the importance of personal relationships in the advance care planning process. The last objection is especially pertinent in light of recent empirical research highlighting the importance of personal relationships in advance care planning. This article examines these four objections to autonomy, and the liberal theoretical framework with which it is associated, in order to re-evaluate the philosophical basis of advance care planning. We argue that liberal autonomy (i) is not a misconceived concept as critics assume, (ii) does not entail the denial of values of social justice, (iii) can account for justifiable acts of paternalism, though it (iv) is not the best account of the value of personal relationships that arise in advance care planning. In conclusion, we suggest that liberalism is a necessary component of a theoretical framework for advance care planning but that it needs to be supplemented with theories that focus explicitly on the significance of personal relationships.  (+info)

The value of taking an 'ethics history'. (2/172)

OBJECTIVES: To study the value of taking an ethics history as a means of assessing patients' preferences for decision making and for their relatives' involvement. DESIGN: Questionnaire administered by six junior doctors to 56 mentally competent patients, admitted into general and geriatric medical beds. SETTING: A large district general hospital in the United Kingdom. MAIN MEASURES: To establish whether patients were adequately informed about their illness and whether they minded the information being communicated to their relatives. To establish their preference regarding truthful disclosure and participation in decision making with risk attached. To establish whether they wished to be involved in CPR decision making, and if not, who should make the decision. To establish whether they knew of living wills and whether they had any advance directives. RESULTS: Twenty-four (43%) were inadequately informed of their illness. Forty-six (82%) said they would want to know were something serious to be found. Twenty-eight (50%) wanted to make their own decision if requiring risky treatment and 11 (20%) wanted family members involved. Thirty-one (55%) wanted to make a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) decision and five of these decisions differed from those made by the doctors. Twenty-five (45%) preferred the doctors to decide. Eleven (20%) of the patients had heard of living wills but only one had executed such a will. Seven (13%) of the patients wished to provide advance directives. Three (5%) did not find the history taking helpful but none were discomforted. CONCLUSION: Taking an ethics history is a simple means of obtaining useful information about patients' preferences.  (+info)

Symptom burden, quality of life, advance care planning and the potential value of palliative care in severely ill haemodialysis patients. (3/172)

BACKGROUND: There has been little research on the potential value of palliative care for dialysis patients. In this pilot study, we sought (i) to identify symptom burden, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and advance directives in extremely ill haemodialysis patients to determine their suitability for palliative care and (ii) to determine the acceptability of palliative care to patients and nephrologists. METHODS: Nineteen haemodialysis patients with modified Charlson co-morbidity scores of > or =8 were recruited. Each completed surveys to assess symptom burden, HRQoL and prior advance care planning. Palliative care specialists then visited patients twice and generated recommendations. Patients again completed the surveys, and dialysis charts were reviewed to assess nephrologists' (i) compliance with recommendations and (ii) documentation of symptoms reported by patients on the symptom assessment survey. Patients and nephrologists then completed surveys assessing their satisfaction with palliative care. RESULTS: Patients reported 10.5 symptoms, 40% of which were noted by nephrologists in patients' charts. HRQoL was significantly impaired. Thirty-two percent of patients had living wills. No differences were observed in symptoms, HRQoL or number of patients establishing advance directives as a result of the intervention. Sixty-eight percent of patients and 76% of nephrologists rated the intervention worthwhile. CONCLUSIONS: Extremely ill dialysis patients have marked symptom burden, considerably impaired HRQoL and frequently lack advance directives, making them appropriate candidates for palliative care. Patients and nephrologists perceive palliative care favourably despite its lack of effect in this study. A more sustained palliative care intervention with a larger sample size should be attempted to determine its effect on the care of this population.  (+info)

Advance care planning in nursing homes: correlates of capacity and possession of advance directives. (4/172)

PURPOSE: The identification of nursing home residents who can continue to participate in advance care planning about end-of-life care is a critical clinical and bioethical issue. This study uses high quality observational research to identify correlates of advance care planning in nursing homes, including objective measurement of capacity. DESIGN AND METHODS: The authors used cross-sectional, cohort study between 1997 and 1999. Seventy-eight residents (M age = 83.97, SD = 8.2) and their proxies (M age = 59.23, SD = 11.77) were included across five nursing homes. The authors obtained data via chart review, proxy interviews, resident assessments, survey completion by certified nursing assistants, and direct observation of residents' daily behaviors. RESULTS: Capacity assessments revealed that most residents could state a simple treatment preference (82.4%), but a sizable number did not retain capacity to understand treatment alternatives or appreciate the consequences of their choice. Global cognitive ability (Mini-Mental State Examination score) was related to understanding and appreciation. When the authors removed the effects of global cognitive ability, understanding and appreciation were related to time spent by residents in verbal interaction with others. Residents were more likely to possess advance directives when proxies possessed advance directives, proxies were less religious, and residents were socially engaged. IMPLICATIONS: Assessment of proxy beliefs and direct determination of residents' decisional capacity and social engagement may help nursing home staff identify families who may participate in advance planning for end-of-life medical care. Measures of global cognitive ability offer limited information about resident capacity for decision making. Decisional capacity assessments should enhance the verbal ability of individuals with dementia by reducing reliance on memory in the assessment process. Interventions to engage residents and families in structured discussions for end-of-life planning are needed.  (+info)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: the last year of life. (5/172)

Nearly one quarter million Americans die with or of advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) each year. Many patients die after a prolonged functional decline that is accompanied by much suffering. Though difficult prognostically and emotionally, anticipation of death opens the door to planning and preparing for terminal care. Epidemiologists have begun to identify characteristics of COPD patients who are most likely to die within 6-12 months, including severe, irreversible airflow obstruction, severely impaired and declining exercise capacity and performance status, older age, concomitant cardiovascular or other co-morbid disease, and a history of recent hospitalizations for acute care. Clinicians are encouraged to raise the difficult subject of planning for death when many of these characteristics apply. Patients with far-advanced disease are often receptive to the recommendation of a dual agenda: "Hope for and expect the best, and prepare for the worst." Medical advance planning is best pursued in an out-patient office during a prescheduled, 3-way conversation between patient, health care proxy, and physician. An advance directive can be written after the meeting to summarize the conversation. Clinicians should consider recommending hospice care when a COPD patient is at high risk of respiratory failure from the next chest infection and in need of frequent or specialized home care. Preparation for death should include a realistic appraisal of the prospects for dying peacefully at home and a contingency plan for terminal hospitalization, should the need arise.  (+info)

Patient-physician communication about end-of-life care for patients with severe COPD. (6/172)

Since patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) infrequently discuss treatment preferences about end-of-life care with physicians, the goal of the present study was to identify which specific areas of communication about end-of-life care occur between patients with severe COPD and their physicians, and how patients rate the quality of this communication. A total of 115 patients with oxygen-dependent COPD, identified in pulmonary clinics in three hospitals and through an oxygen delivery company, were enrolled in this study. A 17-item quality of communication questionnaire (QOC) was administered to patients, along with other measures, including satisfaction with care. The patients reported that most physicians do not discuss how long the patients have to live, what dying might be like or patients' spirituality. Patients rated physicians highly at listening and answering questions. Areas patients rated relatively low included discussing prognosis, what dying might be like and spirituality/religion. Patients' assessments of physicians' overall communication and communication about treatment correlated well with the QOC. Patients' overall satisfaction with care also correlated significantly with the QOC. In conclusion, this study identifies areas of communication that physicians do not address and areas that patients rate poorly, including talking about prognosis, dying and spirituality. These areas may provide targets for interventions to improve communication about end-of-life care for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Future studies should determine the responsiveness of these items to interventions, and the effect such interventions have on patient satisfaction and quality of care.  (+info)

Relatives' knowledge of decision making in intensive care. (7/172)

BACKGROUND/AIM: The law on consent has changed in Scotland with the introduction of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000. This Act introduces the concept of proxy consent in Scotland. Many patients in intensive care are unable to participate in the decision making process because of their illness and its treatment. It is normal practice to provide relatives with information on the patient's condition, treatment, and prognosis as a substitute for discussion directly with the patient. The relatives of intensive care patients appeared to believe that they already had the right to consent on behalf of an incapacitated adult. The authors' aim was to assess the level of knowledge among relatives of intensive care patients of both the old and new law using a structured questionnaire. METHODS: The next of kin of 100 consecutive patients completed a structured questionnaire. Each participant had the questions read to them and their answers recorded. Patients were not involved in the study. RESULTS: Few (10%) were aware of the changes. Most (88%) thought that they previously could give consent on behalf of an incapacitated adult. Only 13% have ever discussed the preferences for life sustaining treatment with the patient but 84% felt that they could accurately represent the patient's wishes. CONCLUSIONS: There appeared to be a lack of public awareness of the impending changes. The effectiveness of the Act at improving the care of the mentally incapacitated adult will depend largely on how successful it is at encouraging communication and decision making in advance of incapacity occurring.  (+info)

Advance care planning and end of life decision making. (8/172)

BACKGROUND: Aging populations with greater rates of cognitive decline demand increased attention to the issues of end of life decision making and advance care planning (ACP). Legislatures have passed statutes that recognise the necessity for both substitute decision making and the declaration in advance of wishes relating to health care. OBJECTIVE: This article discusses ACP and the role of the general practitioner. DISCUSSION: Advance care planning provides patients, relatives and doctors with greater confidence about the future. There is good evidence that patients desire to discuss end of life care, and GPs are in a good position to engage their patients in considering the issues. They have a responsibility to confirm the decision making capacity of patients who write advance health directive documents, to inform and educate their patients about future health care, and to keep the ACP conversation going.  (+info)

Democracy Now: DR. ATUL GAWANDE: Well, this change, which is to remove provisions that would have allowed for doctors to have additional payments to have end-of-life discussions with their patients, is an example of the mistake that repeal represents as a whole. End-of-life discussions are not death panels. But you say it over and over again, you brand it over and over again, and you begin to define what the meaning is of a major policy thats passed. Being able to provide funding for discussions that have been shown to have a huge difference in improving the quality of life patients have and, in a recent study published in the New England Journal, also generated longer life for patients by helping them make better decisions about when to stop therapies that have become harmful to them, like that fourth round of chemotherapy and so on, those kinds of studies indicate we need more, longer and better discussions with doctors, overall. Repeal is a major mistake. Our choices are stalemate on making ...

Results 57 completed questionnaires - 17 chest consultants, 28 chest registrars, 11 physiotherapists, and 1 nurse clinician. 23 (40%) initiated End-of-Life discussions in severe IPF frequently or very frequently, and 47 (84%) felt it was a very important or important part of their role, but 42% felt predicting prognosis in advanced IPF was difficult or very difficult. More consultants felt End-of-Life discussions were an important part of their role than registrars.. Several aspects of End-of-Life care were felt to be harder in severe IPF than advanced malignancy (Figure 1), although similar to advanced COPD. 22 (42%) referred patients with severe IPF to hospital palliative care services very frequently or frequently, and 19 (37%) to community palliative care very frequently or frequently.

Ethics education can prepare trainees for complex cases by teaching them to clarify values and contexts, and to listen and communicate effectively.1 A review of empiric studies on surgical ethics education2 highlighted two overarching goals: (1) cultivating virtuous physicians and (2) teaching skills for the recognition and management of ethical quandaries that develop in the ...

They note that dying is never easy to confront, but its even more difficult in 2015, as we have amazing high-tech solutions that may (easily) prolong life for months or years. The editors of Scientific American note that many patients would choose not to extend their life this way, but modern medicine does not help them with this crucial decision…. That is, the vast majority of people in the United States have never had an end-of-life discussion with their health-care providers, or even family members, about trade-offs between extra days and extra ...

I am relieved to announce that the software, iView Media Pro, with which I am currently cataloging my extensive collection of flatworm image, video and audio files (,25000) has hopefully been resurrected from from a near death experience that it suffered when Microsoft bought iView Media Pro in June 2006 (only to rename it Expression Media and halt any serious development).. Almost exactly one year ago, PhaseOne, a company that develops high-quality camera backs, bought the software from Microsoft, and has just new released version 1.0 of what it now calls Media Pro (available for both Mac and PC). One crucial point for me as a Mac user is that the new software is now written for the Intel chips that are in all modern Macs, while the old version was for PowerPC chips, which will no longer be supported with the next major MacOS upgrade.. The new software looks fairly similar to the old one (which is good), so there is hope that I can continue using it. It has crashed on me once already when ...

It is a national health care objective to ensure that all children with special health care needs have access to comprehensive health care consistent with the standard of a medical home.5,6 A core component of community-based systems of care, the medical home ideally comprises providers who are knowledgeable in the area of chronic condition management and actively screen all children for developmental disability.4 Children with disabilities cared for in medical homes that provide care coordination benefit from increased access to subspecialty care, fewer missed days of school, and decreased family financial burden.7 Moreover, having a medical home is a predictor for less inpatient and emergency department utilization8 and fewer unmet medical and support-service needs.9 The longitudinal relationship between medical home providers, children with disabilities, and their families provides a comfortable and trusted framework for shared decision-making and, in some instances, end-of-life discussions. ...
SUBJECT: ADVANCE DIRECTIVES AND RELEASE OF MEDICAL RECORDS TO TRANSFER SITE. As specialists providing outpatient services in an ambulatory setting, Bethlehem Endoscopy Center does not directly address advance directives with patients scheduled for procedures at the facility. It is the policy of the Medical Director and staff to honor advance directives presented to them by their patients. However, should an untoward event happen to a patient while in the facility, it is also our policy to stabilize the patient and transport to the hospital of their choice with a copy of their advanced directive, if made available.. There are many types of advance directives, but the two most common forms are:.

We acknowledge that this is a single-case report reflecting one couples views on GA therapy and that these may not be shared by other parents in similar circumstances. Providing such a nuanced and detailed account of these parents reasoning precludes exhaustive review of ethical arguments surrounding GA, but these are well documented elsewhere.1 There is a clear need for further work to see whether our findings are replicated, and to consider the views of parents who choose not to access this treatment or who access it for different reasons. However, while the ethical considerations these parents thought important might not be ones other parents think matter, they are viewpoints that can be weighed in the balance and contribute to the quality of ethical argument. In this regard, we believe there are important insights to be gained from this report regarding how these parents characterise benefits and harms and their responsibilities as surrogate decision-makers..

Your physician can use the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) to represent your wishes as clear and specific medical orders.
The information provided in these materials is based on research on advance care planning. Advance care planning (ACP) allows patients and their family members to think about and document the medical care they would want in the event of a serious illness.1-5 ACP includes the following: (1) conversations with physicians about patients goals for their medical care and 2) completion of advance directives (do-not resuscitate order, living will, and health care proxy and/or durable power of attorney). ACP is critical to receiving preferred and high quality care when patients become seriously ill. Patients who engage in ACP are significantly more likely to receive care in line with their end-of-life wishes (86% vs. 30%)6 and to die in their place of preference (85% preferred home).7 An absence of ACP is linked with greater physical and emotional distress and poorer quality of life.8,9 ACP is recommended for all patients, and the timing and nature of ACP may vary depending on whether the person is ...

Completely devastated, all I could do was pray. My advice is dont do as I did but at the first sign of trouble go immediately to your doctor to get checked out.. My oncologist at Northside Hospital found that the cancer had spread throughout my abdomen and into my lungs making it stage 3 cancer.

Advance Directives . For all your medical needs, contact a physician at the Harlingen Medical Center who has extensive experience in many different areas of practice.

I have had a number of near death experiences, and I actually fought with the spirit that was talking to me on my first near death experience and told him I would not go back to earth until I got some answers. He said What do you want to know? and I sat down and he answered questions for so long that it filled 7 large pages when I woke up and wrote it all down before I forgot it. I said I cant even serve the Lord in that kind of body. What good am I down there? I cant even complete the reason I was put on earth. The spirit told me that pain and illness keep us away from rich, shallow, selfish people, keeps us out of the world, and makes us closer to God. The lessons we learn from being sick, from communing with God through prayer when we are suffering, are priceless, and cant be learned any other way. I wouldnt give up that knowledge or that feeling of love and security for anything. Life is just a short 3 hour movie compared to the eternity that was before earth life and the eternity ...

Hi, I recently lost my beloved dog Katie to cancer. She was the light of my life. She was doing well with seemingly no signs of cancer, and suddenly died of something else and they don t know what. Although I knew it was eventually coming, as she was older, I thought we had more time since she acted normal. I am left with a broken heart and lots of guilt because I didn t recognize how soon she would go. Maybe there was something I could have done? I know that people receive after-death communications from their loved ones, but how about pets? Has anyone ever seen their pet in a near ...
The second happened when Sally and I got into a disagreement. ( insert your own joke here) I decided to go for a walk what seemed to be a calm day. As I was turning a corner onto 45Th and Colfax I decided to go into a different Family Video in Griffith to just browse around( insert another joke here).

He than preceded to tell me that there were tornadoes seen in the area. I said Sally is really taking this to far, trying to scare me like that.

I have at times driven my car way to fast around corners (just me in the car) as I like the sensation of speed and on a few occasions I truly felt that It might not end well. When I am driving like this my mind is focused and I am in what I call the zone, heightened awareness and on the job. I know the extent of my misjudgment by the tingling that starts in my hands and works it way up my arms and its very similar if not the same as the sensations that I sometimes get just before a WILD transition - I joke that its the spirit getting ready to leave body as it wants to protect itself and leave before its too late ...

As a reward for Pippin, who had foolishly gazed into a palantír, Gandalf took the hobbit with him to Minas Tirith, the last bastion of the west. Soon after arriving, Gandalf confronted Denethor II, the Ruling Steward, and learned that he was near despair over the death of his eldest son, Boromir. Ostensibly they were allies, but the Steward treated him with disrespect and suspicion. When Faramir, the Stewards younger son, returned from Osgiliath and was attacked by Nazgûl, Gandalf upon Shadowfax drove them away by revealing the power within him; later Faramir told him that Frodo and Sam were still alive and headed towards Mordor. The city was soon besieged by a vast force from Mordor, led by the Witch-king. An ill-advised counter attack resulted in Faramir receiving a wound from a poisoned dart; he lay near death inside the Tower. Still, Gandalf encouraged the men of Minas Tirith to have hope, and dispelled the fear of the Ringwraiths by his very presence. But Saurons catapults hurled ...
Dont be spooked by this. Its too important for pussy-footing about. Practically no-one knows just when they will die, and the precise manner of their death, even if they think they do. But some of us have the privilege of knowing how, when and why we might expect to die. Others have the burden of knowing this about someone they care for. That burden can be made a lot lighter for them, and a comfort to you, through an Advance Care Directive, also known as a Living Will. ...
