The Alliance Advancement Series
Medical & Legal Aspects of Family Conflict with the Medical Team at End-of-Life

Presented on: Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Providing support to a family who is in crisis can be challenging for healthcare professionals and Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs). The transition from medical treatment for recovery to end-of-life care is often met with disbelief and denial by the patient’s family. This webinar will highlight the significant medical, ethical, and legal aspects of family objection to end-of-life treatment. Key areas of focus will include issues related to the challenges that the medical team faces when a family does not want specific tests carried out to make a determination of death or does not agree with termination of medical support after the declaration of death. State accommodations for religious beliefs regarding death as well as the implementation of State legislation regarding neurologic death will also be reviewed.
