Interview: Advance directives for end of life care

Print More

With much of the country closely watching the life-or-death drama being played out in the Terry Schiavo case, the Vermont Ethics Network is urging Vermonters who want to avoid that potential dilemma to obtain a new “advance directive for health care” form. The free document helps Vermonters specify in writing whether or not they want to be kept alive by a feeding tube in the event they are unable to think or act for themselves.

Mitch Wertlieb talks with John Campbell, executive director of the Vermont Ethics Network, about advance directives. (To hear the interview, click on the “Listen” icon.)
