Understanding Advance Directives

Advance Directive documents are underutilized and poorly understood by both patients and physicians. The majority of US doctors & clinicians do not have any directives in place for themselves, nor are they provided the education & training needed to accurately interpret these legal documents when encountered during patient care. Join us here to learn the ins and outs of Advance Directives: Improve patient safety and ensure that you and your patients receive the end-of-life care you want.

"CPR is sometimes appropriate despite DNR orders. No CPR is sometimes appropriate despite lack of DNR orders. When possible, talk to the patient. When possible, talk to the family. Use your head and heart."

"I was power of attorney for health care for my mother,87 years old. When she had a stroke, hospitalized, and her blood pressure was too high, then too low, and she was transferred to ICU after the third day, the nurses wanted specific direction about the level of care she would want. She had profound paralysis, difficulty swallowing, and could not speak.  After being in the ICU another 3 days, it was time to be realistic. The staff and I sat down together and briefly laid out specifics such as "stop CPR efforts after the third unsuccessful defibrillation attempt," "stop efforts to save the life after pacemaker fails to capture," and "stop life-preserving efforts after all blood pressure stabilizing medications and measures fail."  This was helpful to the staff, to me, and to my family to have such clear direction.  My mother survived  the ordeal, only to succumb to urosepsis and another stroke 2 weeks later."
