This unusual book features three award-winning one-act pieces about the tough choices that patients, their families, and their physicians face at the end of their lives. The purpose of the volume is to facilitate awareness and knowledge about living wills and, moreover, the discussion of the many complicated issues surrounding death and dying.
Each game is followed by a critical comment. The introduction provides a clear and concise explanation of the human, ethical and legal contexts for the rights of patients in the United States. The volume contains attachments that contain values for the story and life-wishes, permanent proxies, and resource information.
