dc.description.abstractPatient autonomy is the cornerstone of our medical ethics. Given this commitment to autonomy, proxy decisions will always strike us as problematic: it is always more difficult to ensure that the wishes of the patient are embodied in treatment decisions when someone else must speak for the patient. Proxy decisions are especially disturbing when we fear that the proxy's judgment is tainted by his own interests, so that the proxy is covertly requesting the treatmenten
