A Few More Resources

These are all from the UW Ethics in Medicine site. Click on the Bioethics Topics button to see the long list. Relevant to this week are:

Advance Directives
Do Not Resuscitate Orders
DNR During Anesthesia and Urgent Procedures
End-of-Life Issues
Physician-Assisted Suicide
Termination of Life-Sustaining Treatment

These pages provide excellent information about both medical and ethical issues related to DNR and end-of-life situations.
