The Story of ACP Decisions
More than a decade ago, Angelo Volandes, MD, MPH, helped his patients with advanced illness make informed choices about their care by taking them into the hospital rooms of patients undergoing different treatments, such as being intubated or having a feeding tube. Many patients remarked that they would not have been able to envision how differently their lives would be affected by certain choices if not for this experience.
