I have been regularly blogging recent VSED cases (like the ongoing Bentley case in BC). And I recently updated my 2011 legal overview of VSED in the spring 2014 Journal of Clinical Ethics.
This week, VSED got even more attention. The May-June issue of the Hastings Center Report devotes several articles to VSED.
- Advance Directives, Dementia, and Withholding Food and Water by Mouth — Paul T. Menzel and M. Colette Chandler-Cramer
- Toward a Humane Death with Dementia — Rebecca Dresser
- CASE STUDY: A Fading Decision — Ross Fewing, Timothy W. Kirk, and Alan Meisel
