- Bioethics has long shaped policy concerning end-of-life decision-making, which involves numerous choices about what treatments to administer, taper off, cease, or withhold.
- Traditionally, ethicists have considered patients’ wishes to be paramount.
- Patients can express their wishes for end-of-life care in advance directives such as living wills, which are legally binding in all 50 states.
- Some bioethicists now believe that other interests should be considered in end-of-life decision-making, such as the wishes of family members and others who are close to the patient.
- Another challenge to long-held ethical views on end-of-life care is coming from new findings in neuroscience —specifically, evidence that a “permanent vegetative state” may not always be permanent, suggesting that treatment in such circumstances may sometimes not be futile.
