Abstract
This volume gives an overview on the currently debated ethical issues regarding advance directives from an international perspective. It focuses on a wider understanding of the known and widely accepted concept of patient self-determination for future situations. Although advance directives have been widely discussed since the 1980s, the ethical bases of advance directives still remain a matter of heated debates. The book aims to contribute to these controversial debates by integrating fundamental ethical issues on advance directives with practical matters of their implementation. Cultural, national and professional differences in how advance directives are understood by health care professions and by patients, as well as in laws and regulations, are pinpointed.

Abstract
This unique title offers a novel exploration into the world of advance directives for patients with dementia. Based on real life ethics consultations the expert author has undertaken, the cases depict fascinating and challenging moral issues arising in a variety of healthcare facilities. The dynamics of the interdisciplinary health care teams of these patients, along with the dynamics of the families who are grappling to best serve their loved ones, are outlined and assessed; and the role each player's personal histories have on the ethical issues and their resolution in real life are explored. Following each case study, the author applies a range of concepts introduced in the beginning of the book to the relevant case study, thus integrating theory with a case-based approach. A user-friendly question-and-answer format provides a thought provoking and accessible learning experience for readers. Dementia and the Advance Directive: Lessons from the Bedside tackles complicated and realistic healthcare scenarios and offers an invaluable addition to the literature on advance directives.

Abstract
Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. While death rates from many acute CV illnesses have declined in developing countries, a substantial proportion of individuals with CV disease ultimately die from CV causes. As the population ages, the global burden of CV disease will continue to rise. Until recently, the focus of clinicians has been on saving lives and deferring death. Over the past decade there has been growing recognition of the importance of palliative care and end of life care in CV disease. While palliative and supportive care should be provided throughout the course of serious and life-shortening illnesses, this book focuses on issues that clinicians encounter in end-of-life care. This book provides guidance to clinicians working across the breadth of care settings, in chronic progressive disease as well as sudden arrhythmic death and with advanced technologies. End-of-Life Care in Cardiovascular Disease is designed to assist clinicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers in addressing end of life care for patients with CV disease in a variety of common clinical scenarios. Each chapter is written by expert clinicians and researchers, and concisely reviews current knowledge and recommendations for providing patient- and family-centered end-of-life care.
