Patients increasingly demand a voice in making their wishes known at critical points in their medical treatment, and today these wishes are often spelled out in great detail. Do not resuscitate orders, advance medical directives, pain management options are some of the medical choices patients can express through legal instruments such as a living will, or by designating a health care proxy, so that these choices are clear in the event that the patient cannot express them himself. Legal issues concerning a medical providers failure to carry out a patients wishes, religious objections to executing the living will, capacity issues such as age and mental competence, informed consent, right-to-die legislation, and prohibitions against assisted suicide are also covered here. Important topics discussed include living wills and a durable power of attorney. The patient's right to refuse medical treatment is examined, including advance medical directives, health care proxies, do not resuscitate orders, and the patient's right to pain management. The Appendix provides applicable statutes, resource directories, and other pertinent information and data. The Legal Almanac series consists of over 70 handy guides for the lay person on all aspects of the law. Each volume includes an overview of the topic followed by chapters on the major issues in that subject. Each volume contains an Appendix containing several primary source documents as well as practical forms and checklists. A Glossary defines any technical terms used in the text. Contents Include: Chapter 1: The Patient's Right to Participate in Health Care Decisions Chapter 2: What Is An Advance Directive?
