Title
A new style of end-of-life cases : a patient's right to demand treatment or a physician's right to refuse treatment? The futility debate revisited
Author
Abstract
A classic end-of-life conflict between a physician and a patient concerns a patients refusal of care. New conflicts have begun to emerge. This time the patient wants treatment while the physician refuses treatment based on a futility judgment. Most of the time the predominance of the physicians view is stressed. In this article this predominance is critically analysed resulting in a re-appraisal of the patients will.
