Stories of Quality Lives: Ethics in the Care of Persons With Alzheimer's (2001)
Office of Health Care Ethics, Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics, College of Nursing and Health Science, George Mason University
"An educational video, "Stories of Quality Lives: Ethics in the Care of Persons with Alzheimer's," stimulates viewers to question traditional assumptions of quality of life in persons with Alzheimer's Disease. Two patients with an early diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease and three family caregivers share their stories of ethical decisions with which they have struggled. A nurse specialist in the care of persons with Alzheimer's Disease, as well as a physician, provide a framework for consideration of such issues as truthtelling in diagnosis, driving privileges, autonomy, competence, ethics of behavior control, and decisions about death and dying. The 22-minute video is targeted to health care students and professionals at all levels, in acute care settings, and the community, as well as family caregivers. The video was the winner of the 2001 Sigma Theta Tau International Award for Nursing Electronic Medica and a Bronze Chris Award, presented by the Columbus International Film & Video Festival. Clips from the video can be viewed at http://cnhs.gmu.edu." [Description from The Ethics Forum 2002 Winter; 12(1): 4]
