Substitute Decision Making in End-of-Life Care

Periodically, The New England Journal of Medicine publishes a “Clinical Decisions” interactive that addresses the approach to a clinical issue. A case vignette is followed by specific options, neither of which can be considered either correct or incorrect. In short essays, experts in the field then argue for each of the options. Readers can participate in forming a community opinion by choosing one of the options and, if they like, providing their reasons. This month, the clinical issue is “A Woman without an Advance Directive”.
