The work seeks to fill the gap in the literature on treatment directives, or written documents in which a still competent patient refuses medical treatment under specified conditions to be followed in the event that his or her competence is compromised. This monograph analyzes the frequency of the directives in the Netherlands and their role in medical decision-making.
Cristiano Vezzoni has published numerous times on this topic including "Engineering rights: securing autonomy for incompetent patients," in Regulating Physician-Negotiated Death, a special issue of the Dutch/Flemish Journal of Law & Society.Review:
"In the literature on advance directives, there is often considerable confusion about which of the four sorts of directives is being discussed, and one of Vezzoni's contributions in this book is to bring some terminological clarity to the discussion." - Prof. John Griffiths University of Groningen "In the turmoil of a priori opinions on advance directives Vezzoni offers an outlook which deserves to be accurately taken into account for sociological inquiries and for legislative work as well." - Prof. Tito Ballarino University of Padua"
