Title End of life decision-making for patients with dementia
Date 2001
Description In decision-making for patients with dementia, law and bioethics recognize two central goals: protecting the patient's autonomy and protecting the patient's best interests. These two objectives are not always consistent, however, nor easily applied over the long, downhill course experienced by most patients with dementia.
