Although we may like to think that we will always have control of our lives, there may come a time when we are incapable of making sound decisions for our health. Determining the best way to deal with those situations is difficult, but thanks to advances in medical ethics it may be a little easier.
This week on “Take Care,” Dr. Barron Lerner talks about the different kinds of medical directives and how they can help make an illness-related death easier on the patient’s caregivers. Lerner is an author and professor of medicine at New York University. His most recent book is "The Good Doctor: A Father, a Son and the Evolution of Medical Ethics."
