9780199974559: The Hastings Center Guidelines for Decisions on Life-Sustaining Treatment and Care Near the End of Life: Revised and Expanded Second Edition
Críticas:

Reports and publications from the Hastings Center have been influential in shaping and defining our professional attitudes to ethics of clinical care, particularly in regard to euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide (PAS) and other matters related to end-of-life care. This second edition of their Guidelines is very welcome and provides a clear and reasoned approach to the different clinical scenarios... It's a pleasure to read as the material is logically sequenced and each statement or recommendation is justified-you feel each bit has been thought through and care taken to write it clearly. If you have an interest in the ethical underpinnings of what we do, this book is for you. If you teach about ethics and clinical practice, or are responsible for it at your institution, this is required reading. ( Roger Woodruff for IAHPC News, July 2013)

This groundbreaking expansion of the Guidelines incorporates research and innovation in clinical care, law, and policy. It is written for physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals and is structured for easy reference in difficult clinical situations. It supports the work of clinical ethicists, ethics committee members, health lawyers, clinical educators, scholars, and policymakers. It includes extensive practical recommendations. ( Anticancer Research, August 2013)

Reseña del editor:

Decisions about life-sustaining treatment are often ethically challenging for patients, surrogate decision-makers, and health care professionals. Providing safe, effective, and compassionate care near the end of life is a priority for health care organizations. In times of uncertainty, crisis, or reflection, and in efforts to improve health care for seriously ill patients, guidelines can help.

This is the first updated, expanded edition of The Hastings Center's 1987 Guidelines on the Termination of Life-Sustaining Treatment and Care of the Dying, which shaped the ethical and legal framework for decision-making on treatment and end-of-life care in the United States. The new edition, the product of an authoritative consensus process, incorporates 25 years of research, innovation, and developments in law and policy. It summarizes the current framework for making good decisions about treatment and care and identifies educational and organizational goals for health care systems. It covers care planning, decision-making for adults and for children, care transitions, the determination of death, and the policies and processes that support good care at the bedside. It also addresses the psychological and social dimensions of care near the end of life, with attention to effective communication with patients and loved ones and among team members.

This book is written for physicians, nurses, and other clinicians in hospitals, nursing homes, home care, and hospice. It is structured for ease of reference during difficult clinical situations and includes extensive practical recommendations supported by print and online resources. This book is also essential reading for clinical ethicists, ethics committee members, health lawyers, and medical and nursing directors. As the U.S. confronts the challenges of health care reform, an aging population, increasing technological capacity to extend life, and serious cost implications, The Hastings Center Guidelines are invaluable to educators, scholars, and policymakers.
