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.

"Excellent presentation of a phenomenon I have witnessed countless times in the emergency department.  Family advocating under-treatment for personal gains or patients lingering on life-support due to indecisive proxies are events vastly fewer in number compared to those patients who are not receiving treatment due to the widespread misperceptions of AD by medical staff.  Simply be more literal and less interpretative, asking for clarification from those who best know the patient.  The ABCDE paradigm proposed by Dr. Mirarchi is very helpful."

"I would probably not use the phrase, "withdraw care and treatment."  I'd rather say direct the care and treatment to focus on comfort measures... We continue to care for the patient and treat symptoms..."
