Despite the potential benefits of advance directives, few patients complete them.

The subjects consisted of all the internists (n=6) at a primary care physician home care (HC) service and all the internists (n=4) at a primary care nursing home (NH) service.
Physicians were given a 5-week course on the law relating to advance directives.
Administrative consent was obtained to permit physicians to spend to additional time with patients to discuss advance directives.
