New Discussion Guide on End-Of-Life Decisions Published by NIF

National Issues Forums (NIF) has just published a new discussion guide about end-of-life decisions. The discussion guide, titled Life and Death Decisions: Who Decides? presents information about aspects of end-of-life decisions that are currently at issue in the country, and three possible approaches for consideration. The approaches are “Preserving Life,” which states that as long as there is the ability to maintain life, our skills should be employed in sustaining it; “Maintaning Quality of Life” which states that sometimes withdrawing life support is appropriate even when further treatment would help the patient live longer; and “My Choice, My Right” which states that People should all have the right to decide whether they want to live or die. To download or order the guide, visit www.nifi.org/discussion_guides/guides.aspx?catID=12.
