End-of-Life Decision Making: What Does Law Have to Do with It?
Susan Shapiro
Research Professor, American Bar Foundation

A recent study found that 70% of Americans over age 60 who required medical decisions in the final days of life lacked capacity to make them. The likelihood that the biggest life-and-death decision of our lives—literally—will be made by someone else is, therefore, very real. Yet we know remarkably little about how these proxy decision makers actually make life-and-death decisions on our behalf. Drawing on observations over three years of daily encounters between health care providers and family members of patients without decision-making capacity in two intensive care units, this presentation will examine the role of advance directives in end-of-life decision making.
