This gripping documentary struggles with a profoundly troubling bioethical problem. Under what circumstances does a severely injured patient have the right to refuse treatment? This film is unique because it spans a ten-year period. This is an outstanding resource to provoke a debate about the complex issues that occur in decision making. Useful for working with students in ethics, medicine, nursing, social work, chaplaincy and others that struggle with these difficult questions. The video is designed to be used in two parts.
