The article in Friday's newspaper regarding the Wisconsin Medical Society and hospitals encouraging the use of advance directives and doctor-patient discussion of end of life choices is long overdue and welcome.
Besides discussing palliative and hospice care, I hope those discussions broaden the range of topics to terminal sedation to stop uncontrolled pain and the voluntary stopping of eating and drinking.
You have free articles remaining.
In addition, the Wisconsin Medical Society should support the Wisconsin Death With Dignity Bill, modeled after the Oregon Death With Dignity Law, which has been supported by Sen. Fred Risser.
