ADVANCE DIRECTIVES – Principles and Practice | References

Question for Dr. Stall

I am a NYC paramedic, and member of the Editorial Board of Emergency Medical Services Magazine. I am curently in the process of researching an article that I am writing on the topic of pre-hospital DNR’s and advance directives in general. I was wondering if you can recommend any texts that can provide good examples of case law as it relates to this topic?

Response from Dr. Stall

Try the following Web sites:

http://wings.buffalo.edu/faculty/research/bioethics/legal.html

Also, contact the NYS Task Force on Life and the Law through the NYS Department of Health and try to get a copy of: “Life-Sustaining Treatment: Making Decisions and Appointing a Health Care Agent” (also available HERE from Health Research Incorporated).

Hope that helps.

Sincerely,

Dr. Rob Stall
