Abstract

In principle increasing the use of advance directives is important. However, they are not sufficient to address the important concerns of family members of dying patients. We must move from a focus on single interventions, such as the living will, to public policies that use multifaceted interventions to provide competent, coordinated, and compassionate end-of-life care.
