Compliance by health personnel or proxies with the stipulations of ADVANCE DIRECTIVES (or similar directives such as RESUSCITATION ORDERS) when patients are unable to direct their own care.
Declarations by patients, made in advance of a situation in which they may be incompetent to decide about their own care, stating their treatment preferences or authorizing a third party to make decisions for them. (Bioethics Thesaurus)
Written, witnessed declarations in which persons request that if they become disabled beyond reasonable expectation of recovery, they be allowed to die rather than be kept alive by extraordinary means. (Bioethics Thesaurus)
Discussions with patients and/or their representatives about the goals and desired direction of the patient's care, particularly end-of-life care, in the event that the patient is or becomes incompetent to make decisions.
Care provided patients requiring extraordinary therapeutic measures in order to sustain and prolong life.
A person authorized to decide or act for another person, for example, a person having durable power of attorney.
Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.
A legal concept for individuals who are designated to act on behalf of persons who are considered incapable of acting in their own behalf, e.g., minors and persons found to be not mentally competent.
The ability to understand the nature and effect of the act in which the individual is engaged. (From Black's Law Dictionary, 6th ed).
Instructions issued by a physician pertaining to the institution, continuation, or withdrawal of life support measures. The concept includes policies, laws, statutes, decisions, guidelines, and discussions that may affect the issuance of such orders.
Voluntary cooperation of the patient in taking drugs or medicine as prescribed. This includes timing, dosage, and frequency.
Self-directing freedom and especially moral independence. An ethical principle holds that the autonomy of persons ought to be respected. (Bioethics Thesaurus)
Medical and nursing care of patients in the terminal stage of an illness.
The kind of action or activity proper to the judiciary, particularly its responsibility for decision making.
The purpose of this 1990 federal act is to assure that individuals receiving health care services will be given an opportunity to participate in and direct health care decisions affecting themselves. Under this act, hospitals, health care agencies, and health maintenance organizations are responsible for developing patient information for distribution. The information must include patients' rights, advance directives, living wills, ethics committees' consultation and education functions, limited medical treatment (support/comfort care only), mental health treatment, resuscitation, restraints, surrogate decision making and transfer of care. (from JCAHO, Lexicon, 1994)
The right of the patient or the patient's representative to make decisions with regard to the patient's dying.

Autonomy, liberalism and advance care planning. (1/32)

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)

Decisions to treat or not to treat pneumonia in demented psychogeriatric nursing home patients: development of a guideline. (2/32)

Non-treatment decisions concerning demented patients are complex: in addition to issues concerning the health of patients, ethical and legal issues are involved. This paper describes a method for the development of a guideline that clarifies the steps to be taken in the decision making process whether to forgo curative treatment of pneumonia in psychogeriatric nursing home patients. The method of development consisted of seven steps. Step 1 was a literature study from which ethical, juridical and medical factors concerning the patient's health and prognosis were identified. In step 2, a questionnaire was sent to 26 nursing home physicians to determine the relative importance of these factors in clinical practice. In a meeting of nine experienced physicians (step 3), the factors identified in step 2 were confirmed by most of these professionals. To prevent the final guideline being too directive, a concept guideline that included ethical and legal aspects was designed in the form of a "checklist of considerations" (step 4). Experts in the fields of nursing home medicine, ethics and law reviewed and commented on the concept guideline (step 5). The accordingly adapted "checklist of considerations" was tested in a pilot study (step 6), after which all experts endorsed the checklist (step 7). The resulting "checklist of considerations" structures the decision making process according to three primary domains: medical aspects, patient's autonomy, and patient's best interest (see annex at end of paper).  (+info)

Physicians's reports on the impact of living wills at the end of life in Japan. (3/32)

CONTEXT: A growing number of Japanese people have completed advance directives, especially living wills, even though there is no legislation recognising such documents and little empirical research on their impact on clinical care at the end of life in Japan. OBJECTIVES: To investigate physicians' attitudes about living wills and their experiences with patients who had completed a living will and later died. DESIGN: Self administered survey and qualitative study using open question and content analysis. SETTING: Japan. PARTICIPANTS: Physicians known to have cared for a patient who had presented a living will prior to death. MEASUREMENTS: The physician's response to receiving a living will, communication about the living will, the impact of the living will on clinical care, demographics, and their opinion on advance directives, especially living wills. MAIN RESULTS: Fifty five per cent of respondents approved of advance directives in general, and 34% had more opportunities to communicate with a patient and his/her family after receiving the living will. Sixty nine per cent of the physicians who received a living will did not, however, change their course of therapy as a consequence of receiving the living wills. Based on the analysis, we identified three areas of concern in the comments on living wills: (1) concerns relative to patients, physicians, and families; (2) social context, and (3) clinical and administrative concerns. The physicians raised various topics for discussion; they tended to describe the issues from a clinical perspective. CONCLUSIONS: Our identified areas of concern should prove helpful in better understanding the clinical and ethical implications of living wills in Japan.  (+info)

Adherence to advance directives in critical care decision making: vignette study. (4/32)

OBJECTIVE: To explore health professionals' decision making in a critical care scenario when there is an advance directive. DESIGN: Qualitative study. SETTING: Scotland. PARTICIPANTS: Interviewees (n = 12) comprising general practitioners, hospital specialists, and nurses, and six focus groups (n = 34 participants) comprising general practitioners, geriatricians (consultants and specialist registrars), hospital nurses, and hospice nurses. RESULTS: When presented with an advance directive that applied to the same hypothetical scenario, health professionals came to divergent conclusions as to the "right thing to do." Arguments opposing treatment centred on the supremacy of autonomy as an ethical principle. Other arguments were that the decision to treat was consistent with the terms of the advance directive, or that, notwithstanding the advance directive, the patient's quality of life was sufficient to warrant treatment. CONCLUSION: Advance directives are open to widely varying interpretation. Some of this variability is related to the ambiguity of the directive's terminology whereas some is related to the willingness of health professionals to make subjective value judgments concerning quality of life.  (+info)

Respecting end-of-life treatment preferences. (5/32)

Most patients eventually must face the process of planning for their future medical care. However, few Americans have a living will or a durable power of attorney for health care. Although advance directives provide a legal basis for physicians to carry out treatment using a health care proxy or a living will, they also should reflect the patient's values and preferences. Family physicians are in a position to integrate medical knowledge, individual values, and cultural influences into end-of-life care. Family physicians can best respect the autonomy of patients by allowing the patient and family to prospectively identify relevant health care preferences, by sustaining an ongoing discussion about end-of-life preferences, and by abiding by the decisions their patients have made.  (+info)

Living wills and the Mental Capacity Act: a postal questionnaire survey of UK geriatricians. (6/32)

OBJECTIVE: To determine geriatricians' experience of and views on living wills, National Health Service Trusts' support of advance end-of-life health care planning and geriatricians' views on related legal changes in the Mental Capacity Act. DESIGN: Anonymous postal questionnaire survey of all 1,426 British Geriatrics Society members in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. RESULTS: A total of 842 (59%) questionnaires were returned. Of 811 geriatricians, 454 (56%) had cared for patients with living wills. Of the 280 who cared for patients when the living will had come into effect, 108 (39%) had changed treatment because of the living will and 84 (78%) of those felt that decisions had been easier to make. Living wills not already in effect made discussions with patients [171 of 178 (96%)] and families [135 of 178 (76%)] easier. Of 779 geriatricians, 713 (92%) saw advantages of older people using living wills; 467 of these also expressed concerns. Only 16 (2%) geriatricians who had concerns said that there were no advantages. A total of 214 (27%) were aware that their Trust had a form to help with discussions about cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Fewer [126 of 781 (16%)] were aware of a Trust policy on living wills. The proposal, in the Mental Capacity Bill, for advance refusals of treatment was supported by 59% (476 of 801), yet the proposal for a lasting power of attorney (LPA) covering health care was only supported by 47% (382 of 806). CONCLUSION: Many geriatricians have positive experiences of caring for patients with living wills. Despite recognising potential problems, most geriatricians support the use of living wills by older people. However, most believe that their Trust does not have a policy to support advance health care planning. Geriatricians have reservations about LPAs covering health care.  (+info)

Perioperative do-not-resuscitate orders--doing 'nothing' when 'something' can be done. (7/32)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has the ability to reverse premature death. It can also prolong terminal illness, increase discomfort and consume enormous resources. Despite the desire to respect patient autonomy, there are many reasons why withholding CPR may be complicated in the perioperative setting. This review outlines these factors in order to offer practical suggestions and to provoke discussion among perioperative care providers. Although originally described for witnessed intraoperative arrests, closed chest cardiac massage quickly became universal practice, and a legal imperative in many hospitals. Concerns were raised by both health care workers and patient groups; this eventually led to the creation of the do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order. However, legal precedents and ethical interpretations dictated that patients were expected to receive full resuscitation unless there was explicit documentation to the contrary. In short, CPR became the only medical intervention that required an order to prevent it from being performed. Before the 1990s, patients routinely had pre-existing DNR orders suspended during the perioperative period. Several articles criticized this widespread practice, and the policy of 'required reconsideration' was proposed. Despite this, many practical issues have hindered widespread observance of DNR orders for surgical patients, including concerns related to the DNR order itself and difficulties related to the nature of the operating room environment. This review outlines the origins of the DNR order, and how it currently affects the patient presenting for surgery with a pre-existing DNR order. There are many obstacles yet to overcome, but several practical strategies exist to aid health care workers and patients alike.  (+info)

Content of advance directives for individuals with advanced dementia. (8/32)

 (+info)

An advance directive is a legal document that outlines an individual's preferences for medical treatment and care in the event that they become unable to make decisions for themselves due to illness or injury. Advance directive adherence refers to the process of ensuring that healthcare providers follow the instructions and wishes outlined in a patient's advance directive.

Advance directive adherence involves several steps, including:

1. Communication: Healthcare providers should have open and honest discussions with their patients about advance care planning, including end-of-life care preferences. This can help ensure that the patient's wishes are understood and documented in an advance directive.
2. Documentation: Healthcare providers should document the patient's advance directive in their medical record, along with any relevant discussions or decisions made about treatment options.
3. Sharing: Healthcare providers should share the patient's advance directive with other members of the healthcare team, as well as with family members or other designated decision-makers.
4. Respecting: Healthcare providers should respect and follow the instructions outlined in the patient's advance directive, unless there are medical reasons why they cannot be followed. If there is a conflict between the advance directive and the patient's current wishes or values, healthcare providers should engage in ongoing communication with the patient and their decision-makers to determine the best course of action.
5. Reviewing: Healthcare providers should regularly review the patient's advance directive to ensure that it remains up-to-date and reflects their current wishes and values. This is especially important if the patient's medical condition changes or if they experience a significant life event.

Advance directives are legal documents that allow individuals to express their wishes and preferences regarding medical treatment in the event that they become unable to make decisions for themselves due to serious illness or injury. These documents typically include a living will, which outlines the types of treatments an individual wants or doesn't want to receive in specific circumstances, and a healthcare power of attorney, which designates a trusted person to make medical decisions on their behalf.

Advance directives are an important tool for ensuring that individuals receive the medical care they desire, even when they cannot communicate their wishes themselves. They can also help to prevent family members from having to make difficult decisions about medical treatment without knowing what their loved one would have wanted. It is important for individuals to discuss their advance directives with their healthcare providers and loved ones to ensure that everyone understands their wishes and can carry them out if necessary.

A Living Will, also known as an Advance Directive or Advanced Health Care Directive, is a legal document that outlines a person's wishes regarding their medical treatment and end-of-life care in the event that they become unable to make decisions for themselves due to incapacitation. It typically includes instructions about whether to use life-sustaining treatments, such as mechanical ventilation or artificial nutrition and hydration, when there is no reasonable hope of recovery.

The purpose of a Living Will is to provide guidance to healthcare providers and family members regarding medical decisions that align with the individual's values, beliefs, and preferences. It is important to note that a Living Will only becomes effective under specific circumstances, such as when a person is diagnosed with a terminal illness or is in a persistent vegetative state.

It is recommended that individuals consult with an attorney or legal expert to ensure their Living Will meets the legal requirements of their state and accurately reflects their wishes. Additionally, it is essential to discuss these decisions with family members and healthcare providers to ensure everyone understands the person's preferences for medical care.

Advance care planning (ACP) is a process that involves discussing and documenting an individual's preferences and goals for future medical care, particularly in the event that they become unable to make decisions for themselves due to serious illness or injury. The purpose of ACP is to ensure that a person's values, beliefs, and wishes are respected and honored when it comes to their healthcare decisions.

ACP typically involves discussions between the individual, their loved ones, and healthcare providers about various topics such as:

* The individual's understanding of their current health status and prognosis
* Their goals for medical treatment, including any treatments they would or would not want to receive
* Their values and beliefs that should guide their medical care
* The appointment of a healthcare proxy or surrogate decision-maker who can make decisions on their behalf if they become unable to make them for themselves.

The outcome of ACP is often the creation of an advance directive, which is a legal document that outlines the individual's wishes for medical treatment and appoints a healthcare proxy. Advance care planning is an ongoing process that should be revisited and updated regularly as an individual's health status and preferences change over time.

Life support care, also known as artificial life support or mechanical ventilation, refers to medical interventions that are used to maintain and sustain the essential body functions of a patient who is unable to do so independently. These interventions can include mechanical ventilation to assist with breathing, hemodialysis to filter waste from the blood, intravenous (IV) fluids and medications to maintain circulation, and various other treatments to support organ function.

The goal of life support care is to keep a patient alive while treating their underlying medical condition, allowing time for the body to heal or providing comfort at the end of life. The use of life support can be temporary or long-term, depending on the patient's prognosis and the severity of their illness or injury.

It is important to note that decisions regarding the initiation, continuation, or withdrawal of life support care are complex and multifaceted, often requiring input from medical professionals, patients, and their families. Ethical considerations and advance directives, such as living wills and healthcare proxies, may also play a role in these decisions.

In the context of medicine, a proxy is an individual who is authorized to make healthcare decisions on behalf of another person, also known as the principal, when the principal is unable to make or communicate their own decisions. This may be due to factors such as incapacity, illness, or injury. The proxy is typically appointed through legal documents such as advance directives, health care powers of attorney, or guardianship arrangements. It's important for individuals to establish clear advance care plans and choose a trusted proxy to ensure their healthcare wishes are respected when they cannot speak for themselves.

"Withholding treatment" in a medical context refers to the deliberate decision not to provide or initiate certain medical treatments, interventions, or procedures for a patient. This decision is typically made after considering various factors such as the patient's wishes, their overall prognosis, the potential benefits and burdens of the treatment, and the patient's quality of life.

The reasons for withholding treatment can vary widely, but some common reasons include:

* The treatment is unlikely to be effective in improving the patient's condition or extending their life.
* The treatment may cause unnecessary discomfort, pain, or suffering for the patient.
* The patient has expressed a desire not to receive certain treatments, particularly if they are deemed to be burdensome or of little benefit.
* The cost of the treatment is prohibitive and not covered by insurance, and the patient cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket.

It's important to note that withholding treatment does not mean abandoning the patient or providing substandard care. Rather, it involves making thoughtful and informed decisions about the most appropriate course of action for a given situation, taking into account the patient's individual needs and preferences.

A legal guardian is an individual who has been appointed by a court to make decisions on behalf of a minor child or an adult who is incapacitated and unable to make decisions for themselves. The legal guardian is responsible for ensuring the well-being and safety of the person in their care, and may be responsible for making decisions related to their education, medical treatment, financial affairs, and living arrangements.

In the context of medical care, a legal guardian may be asked to make important decisions about a patient's treatment, such as whether to consent to surgery or other medical procedures. They may also be responsible for ensuring that the patient receives appropriate medical care and follows through with recommended treatments.

It is important to note that the specific powers and responsibilities of a legal guardian can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the individual circumstances of the case. In general, however, a legal guardian is expected to act in the best interests of the person they are responsible for caring for.

Mental competency, also known as mental capacity, is a legal term that refers to a person's ability to make informed decisions and understand the nature and consequences of their actions. In a medical context, mental competency is often assessed in patients who are making decisions about their own medical care, such as whether to consent to a particular treatment or procedure.

A determination of mental competency typically involves an evaluation of a person's ability to:

* Understand and retain information about their medical condition and the proposed treatment
* Evaluate the risks and benefits of different treatment options
* Make and communicate a clear and consistent decision based on this information
* Understand the potential consequences of their decision

Mental competency can be affected by various factors, including mental illness, cognitive impairment, substance abuse, or developmental disabilities. A healthcare provider may seek a formal evaluation of a patient's mental competency if there are concerns about their ability to make informed decisions about their care. This evaluation may involve input from psychiatrists, psychologists, or other mental health professionals.

It is important to note that mental competency is not the same as legal competency, which refers to a person's ability to understand and participate in legal proceedings. A person may be deemed mentally competent for medical purposes but not for legal purposes, or vice versa.

Resuscitation orders, also known as do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders or no-code orders, are medical instructions written by a physician in the chart of a patient who has a serious illness or chronic health condition and for whom cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) would be medically inappropriate.

The order specifies that if the patient's heart stops or they stop breathing, healthcare providers should not attempt to restart it using CPR or other advanced life support measures. Instead, comfort care measures are provided to keep the patient as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

Resuscitation orders are typically discussed with the patient, their family members, and their healthcare team, taking into account the patient's values, goals, and treatment preferences. The decision to implement a resuscitation order is based on an assessment of the patient's overall prognosis, likelihood of survival, and quality of life.

Medication adherence, also known as medication compliance, refers to the degree or extent of conformity to a treatment regimen as prescribed by a healthcare provider. This includes taking medications at the right time, in the correct dosage, and for the designated duration. Poor medication adherence can lead to worsening health conditions, increased hospitalizations, and higher healthcare costs.

"Personal Autonomy" is not a medical term per se, but it is often used in medical ethics and patient care. It refers to the ability of an individual to make informed decisions about their own health and healthcare, based on their own values, beliefs, and preferences, without undue influence or coercion from others. This includes the right to accept or refuse medical treatment, to maintain confidentiality, and to participate in shared decision-making with healthcare providers. Personal autonomy is recognized as a fundamental principle in medical ethics and patient rights, and is protected by laws and regulations in many countries.

Terminal care, also known as end-of-life care or palliative care, is a type of medical care provided to patients who are in the final stages of a terminal illness or condition. The primary goal of terminal care is to provide comfort, dignity, and quality of life for the patient, rather than attempting to cure the disease or prolong life.

Terminal care may involve managing pain and other symptoms, providing emotional and psychological support to both the patient and their family, and helping the patient plan for the end of their life. This can include discussing advance directives, hospice care options, and other important decisions related to end-of-life care.

The focus of terminal care is on ensuring that the patient's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are met in a compassionate and supportive manner. It is an essential component of high-quality medical care for patients who are facing the end of their lives.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Judicial Role" is not a term that is typically used in medical definitions. It is a legal term that refers to the role and responsibilities of a judge in the administration of justice. This includes presiding over trials, interpreting and applying laws, and ensuring fair and impartial proceedings.

The Patient Self-Determination Act (PSDA) is a federal law in the United States that was enacted as part of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990. The PSDA applies to all healthcare facilities and providers that participate in Medicare or Medicaid programs.

The primary goal of the PSDA is to ensure that patients in these healthcare facilities are informed about their rights to make decisions regarding their own medical care, including the right to accept or refuse treatment, and to establish advance directives, such as living wills and health care proxies.

Under the PSDA, healthcare facilities are required to provide patients with written information about their rights to make decisions about their medical care, as well as their right to execute an advance directive. The healthcare facility must also ask each patient whether they have an advance directive in place and document their response in the medical record. If a patient does not have an advance directive but wishes to create one, the healthcare facility must provide them with the necessary forms and assistance.

The PSDA is intended to promote patient autonomy and self-determination, ensuring that patients receive care that is consistent with their values, goals, and preferences. It also aims to prevent unnecessary medical treatments and reduce the use of life-sustaining measures that may not align with a patient's wishes.

"Right to Die" is not a medical term per se, but it's a concept that has significant implications in medical ethics and patient care. It generally refers to the right of a competent, terminally ill individual to choose to end their life in a humane and dignified manner, usually through physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia. This decision is typically made when the individual experiences unbearable suffering and believes that death is preferable to continued living.

The right to die raises complex ethical, legal, and medical issues related to autonomy, informed consent, palliative care, and end-of-life decision-making. It's important to note that while some jurisdictions have laws allowing physician-assisted suicide or euthanasia under specific circumstances, others do not, reflecting the ongoing debate about this issue in society.
