Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This book provides a helpful step-by-step guide to preparing advance directives. Unlike many living will guides, it is not bogged down by legal terminology. In plain English, it addresses the problems that may be encountered, the values involved, the types of medical procedures to consider, and the steps needed to create advance directives that reflect your wishes. VanEllen, a registered nurse and bioethics consultant, spends time helping readers sort out their personal values. Special pluses are the "Checklist for Preparing an Advance Directive" and a section on financial considerations surrounding the end of life, which, while not directly connected to healthcare directives, may appropriately be addressed at the same time. Missing from VanEllen's book is a detailed explanation of how state laws differ. For that, see Terry James Barnett's Living Wills and More ( LJ 12/92) or check with the state bar association or your local hospital. A practical addition to most public or medical collections.
