Advance Directives: Guaranteeing Health Care Rights (1991)
American Hospital Association
Advance directives should be completed by patients when they are healthy to preserve the right of patients to make decisions about health care and "when to use or not use high technology." William Colby speaks on the Nancy Cruzan case; Senator Danforth on the Patient Self Deterimination Act (PSDA); and Myra Christopher from the Midwest Bioethics Center also speaks on the issue. The program is produced by the American Hospital Association and co-sponsored by the National Society for Patient Representation and Consumer Affairs and the American Hospital Association's Education Product Development Divison.
