  1. Advances directives : effect of type of directive on physicians' therapeutic decisions.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. Meeting. Toronto ON (CAN), 1992/05/26.

    Background

    Despite growing support for advance directives, there are few data validating their utility.

    We conducted this study to determine if the type of advance directive influences physicians'willingness to withhold specific therapies and if physicians are equally willing to with-hold these therapies.

    Methods

    The 444 full-time faculty of the department of medicine of a university medical center were presented with patient scenarios and accompanying advance directives in three separate surveys that were mailed.

    They were asked if they would withhold each of 12 specific therapies based on their interpretation of the advance directive.
