Advanced Directives: A Personal Choice
After reading this week\’s chapters and viewing the video consider your opinion about these choices. The information you has obtained, along with your knowledge of the Terri Schiavo case (2005) may have convinced you of the benefits of executing an advance directive if you were to become incompetent. You are aware that your family may not be informed about the purpose and function of advance directives, which you now feel are important for them to consider.
What should you consider in deciding what type of advanced directive is best for you?
What might you share with your family about the pros and cons of advanced directives?
What laws in your state should you consider in your decision?
