"When Surrogates Say 'No', How Should Physicians Respond?"

John C. Moskop, Ph.D.
Wallace and Mona Wu Chair in Biomedical Ethics,
Professor of Internal Medicine,
Wake Forest School of Medicine
 
Chair, Clinical Ethics Committee,
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

In this presentation, Dr. Moskop will offer a moral analysis of situations in which surrogate decision-makers and physicians disagree about treatment for patients who lack decision-making capacity.  The presentation will begin with several examples of cases in which surrogates refuse physician-recommended treatment for patients without capacity.  After a review of the moral rationale for relying on surrogate decision-makers, Dr. Moskop will consider who should be authorized to serve as surrogates for patients who lack capacity and describe three standards commonly used to guide and assess surrogates’ decisions.  He will identify and evaluate multiple physician options for responding to surrogates’ refusals of treatment.  The presentation will conclude with brief comments on the introductory cases.
