Although the laws of informed consent favor a patient's right of preference, serious legal issues are raised whenever the decision is made to withhold or withdraw medical treatment by someone other than the patient. This second edition discusses the legal issues involved every time these decisions must be made, and gives you a detailed analysis of the reported cases and statutes. You'll examine the new developments in assisted suicide and mercy killing; the liability issues regarding the decisions to forgo life-sustaining treatment; the non-legal developments in right-to-die issues; and the statutory changes in right-to-die laws.
