Description

The array of decisions that need to be made about health care, as we age or if we are unable to care for ourselves at some point, can be bewildering. But it is essential that we make these choices, and convey them to our loved ones, doctors, and pastors, before we cannot speak for ourselves. In this volume, as in the previous two produced by the Committee on Medical Ethics, the choices and considerations we face are laid out in plain, clear language. In an accessible question-and-answer format, the Committee explores Christian understandings of the end of life, advance directives, choosing surrogate decision makers for our health care, the use and selection of various life-sustaining treatments, caring for those in pain and suffering, and dealing with the issues of assisted suicide and euthanasia. The book includes a chapter on the impact of our changing health care systems, and appendices full of resources for making decisions.show more
