ABF Scholar Sheds a Light on Life-and-Death Decisions in Intensive Care

Fall 2019

Researching Law, Vol. 30, No. 2

Improving the understanding of law as it relates to everyday life is vital to the research mission of the ABF. In a new book, Speaking for the Dying: Life-and-Death Decisions in Intensive Care, ABF Research Professor Susan P. Shapiro uncovers the complex decision-making process and the role of law in end-of-life care. This edition of Researching Law details the most extensive observational study to date of how loved ones navigate life-and-death decisions for patients who are unable to speak for themselves.
