This major new work updates and significantly expands The Hastings Center's 1987 Guidelines on the Termination of Life-Sustaining Treatment and Care of the Dying. Like its predecessor, this second edition will shape the ethical and legal framework for decision-making on treatment and end-of-life care in the United States.
This groundbreaking work incorporates 25 years of 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.
Health care reform places a new set of challenges on decision-making and care near the end of life. The Hastings Center Guidelines are an essential resource.

"This second edition of the classic Guidelines for Decisions on Life-Sustaining Treatment and Care Near the End of Life is a gem. The coverage of issues related to the care of children is a welcome addition, and now makes the document a truly comprehensive textbook for ethical, legal, institutional, and psychosocial aspects of end-of-life care. The format is particularly attractive, allowing the reader to absorb concise "bullet points" on each topic with easy access to more detailed discussion in the text. This excellent organizational format, plus the searchable ebook, makes these Guidelines a uniquely practical resource for all who care for patients near the end-of-life." -- Robert Truog, Professor of Medical Ethics, Anesthesiology, & Pediatrics and Director of Clinical Ethics, Harvard Medical School; Executive Director, Institute for Professionalism & Ethical Practice Senior Associate in Critical Care Medicine, Children's Hospital Boston
