Legal Issues Affecting the Terminally Ill Patient
Sponsor
Elena and Miles Zaremski Law-Medicine Forum presented by The Law-Medicine Center
JAN 21, 2010
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
NOTE: NOT a CLE event.
Dr. Cowan will discuss how the rights of terminally ill patients may be affected by federal and state laws, which affect Advance Directives. Individuals create Advance Directives to indicate how they wish to be treated if they should become mentally or physically incapacitated. In addition, federal and U.S. Supreme Court decisions may affect patient autonomy, the role and rights of decisionmakers and caretakers for incapacitated individuals, and the role and authority of States to direct such care.

He will also examine legal decisions affecting physician-assisted suicide / patient-directed death and access by terminally ill patients to drugs not approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for general use.
