White Papers

  • A Good Death: Increasing the Adoption and Effectiveness of Advance Directives in Arizona (2015) - Advance planning for an end-of-life situation can be an effective way to ensure that we live our final days on our own terms.Advance directives, in various formats, outline the patient’s desired treatment options, expressed when he is competent to make such decisions, and would be effective in the event that he loses the capacity to adequately communicate or participate indecisions regarding his own care. Yet fewer than twenty-five percent of Americans have executed advance directive documents that clearly specify their wishes. This paper will discuss various advance directives currently in use and the landmark legal cases that created national awareness and debate over the last 40 years. Additionally, this paper will consider the current state of legislation regarding advance directives nationally and in Arizona and will explore the reasons that the laws inadequately serve to better encourage the use and effectiveness of these documents. As its primary purpose, this paper will propose several statutory changes designed to increase the rate of adoption of advance directives in Arizona and improve the availability of such documents when they are needed most - when a patient is physically or mentally incapable of communicating their end-of-life wishes.
