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)

Your physician can use the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) to represent your wishes as clear and specific medical orders.
As we are educated on the ethical & financial concerns surrounding end-of-life care, we are informed by Institute of Medicine that end-of-life care is broken and accounts for $170 billion in annual spending (1). This projection will exceed $350 billion in less than 5 years. To better align patient wishes, living wills & POLST (Physicians Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) are necessary documents and processes. Whether you like them or not they are here to stay are we need to assure provider competency. Additionally, Medicare now reimburses for advance care planning conversations in the office or via telemedicine. In the past, Physicians have tried to embrace living wills and more recently, the POLST paradigm has emerged to the national forefront. POLST & POLST-like processes have grown rapidly, which has outpaced the ability of states to educate to ensure the safe & effective utilization of this process. Both living wills & POLST have limitations but are good documents with many benefits and ...

The primary outcome is Hospital-Free Days (HFDs), a measure that PI Halpern has been developing in collaboration with Dr. Jeffrey Silber at Penns Center for Outcomes Research. As the name describes, HFDs represent the number of days alive and not in an acute care facility. Although this is a simple concept, and provides an outcome measure of obvious importance to patients, the use of HFDs as a primary outcome in an RCT is highly innovative. To bolster confidence in the results, we will evaluate two key variations on the theme. First, we will explore Healthcare Facility-Free Days, which represents the number of days alive where a patient is in neither an acute care facility, a chronic care facility, or a nursing home. We will also evaluate HFDs within a defined period of follow-up - 6 months in this case. This is analogous to the established outcome of ventilator-free days used commonly in RCTs among ICU ...
A degree of protection is already available to bidders under the current Remedies Directives and as a result of the Alcatel decision[2], embodied in the UK in the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (s32(1) and 32(3)) and the Utilities Regulations 2006 (s33(1) and 33(3)). There has, however, been some uncertainty as to how these provisions apply in practice and considerable criticism of the fact that these provisions do not address some of the most serious breaches of procurement law such as the illegal direct award of public contracts without competition and the misuse of framework agreements.. The new Directive addresses some of these issues, giving aggrieved bidders more opportunities to challenge award decisions and to obtain injunctive relief. As a result, contracting authorities will need to be particularly careful to ensure that they are properly complying with the procurement rules on transparency and competitive tendering..

The main finding of this survey is that 2 years after enactment of the respective legislation, only about two-thirds of the directors of intensive care units in Austria have already dealt with advance directives. Our results are just in line with the findings of comparable studies done in the U.S. [8] and the Scandinavian region [9].. Nonetheless, a response rate of almost 60% proves the great interest of intensive care professionals in making patient-oriented end-of-life decisions. However, as long as patients do not make use of their right of co-determination, the mere existence of a legal framework for the creation of advance directives solves only part of the problem.. The Austrian law of 2006 comprises detailed guidelines for the creation of an advance directive. In order to make it binding, patients have to seek medical and legal advice - a procedure that is not only time-consuming, but also costly (up to € 500,-). Especially a binding advance directive has to include a detailed ...
However, from the perspective of patients with a long history of psychiatric treatment, PADs may actually convey treatment preferences much more accurately than medical advance directives or living wills do, to the extent that such preferences are shaped by previous personal encounters with the health care interventions in question. Precisely through their accumulated personal experience with the negative and positive aspects of treatment, psychiatric patients may gain a more authentic appreciation of the personal value of avoiding or receiving particular types of treatment in the future. In contrast, medical patients who execute living wills may lack this relevant experience and appreciation of future treatment contingencies. That patients complete advance directives having no familiarity with the actual situations or decisions they will face in the future grants physicians, under some circumstances, an ethical warrant to override such directives as invalid expressions of a persons true ...

When we discuss end-of-life wishes with clients, some clients say they want everything possible done to keep them alive, regardless of their physical condition or possible outcome. If they can hang on for a while longer, they reason, there might be some medical advance around the corner that restores their health. If that is your inclination, you have every right to direct your health care providers to pull out all the stops.. On the other hand, you also have the right to reject extraordinary medical procedures that could result in what you consider an unacceptable quality of life. Our law firms experience is that this attitude is far more common. But disturbingly, according to an April 10, 2017 New York Times article, the right to refuse medical treatment is sometimes not honored, even when patients have made the appropriate legal preparations. The logic of many medical providers seems to be to err on the side of caution: After all, someone who has been resuscitated can be disconnected from ...

The following information is provided to help you understand the process. First of all, it is important to understand what a Living Will is. The term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, but in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney. Not to be confused by the title, the purpose of a living will is to allow you to make the decisions about life support. The instructions outlined in your Living Will directs your physician or health care providers to follow your instructions. Living Wills are necessary because advances in medicine have set the stage for the prolonging of life beyond what may be considered as reasonable quality of life. Some people would find this intervention desirable, while others would not. The Living Will allows you to make the decision of whether life-prolonging medical or surgical procedures are to be continued, or withheld or withdrawn and whether enteral and/or parenteral feedings are to be used or withheld. It allows you to express your wishes prior to ...
