Geriatricians' Views of Advance Decisions and Their Use in Clinical Care in England: Qualitative Study
Bond, Catherine Jane
Age and ageing 2011 Jul; 40(4): 450-6
an anticipatory decision document records a person's wishes regarding medical treatment at a time when they have capacity to make choices, to be enacted when this capacity is lost. In England and Wales an advance decision to refuse treatment (ADRT, or advance decision), a legally binding document, is currently rarely used. A disparity is suggested to exist between physicians' support for anticipatory decisions in principle and their lack of impact on decision-making in practice.
