course content to the current healthcare environment is an integral part of
your learning; this also helps develop your awareness of the critical
importance of legal and ethical issues.
Paper 2: Advance Directives-research and discuss the legal
and ethical basis for Advance Directives such as the Living Will and Durable
Power of Attorney for healthcare. Why are these documents so valuable in
healthcare situations? What legal authority do these documents provide for
decision making by family and/or healthcare providers? Briefly discuss a
situation in which a Living Will might apply and would be of benefit to those
involved. Once you have researched and discussed Advance Directives, draft a sample
Living Will, indicating the type of content that should be found in such a
document. Some students take this opportunity to prepare their own actual
Living Will, and that certainly is encouraged.
