Special Edition of Dateline: Honoring Patients’ End-of-Life Decisions

To highlight and address the importance of honoring end-of-life decisions made by patients, we have prepared a Special Edition of Dateline. It is available here on our website.

Patients have a right to accept or refuse treatment, including any or all life-sustaining treatment near the end of life. In this special issue, we review physicians’ medical, ethical and legal obligations to honor individual patient preferences.

If you have questions about these topics, please reach out to us anytime.
