I am also interested in provider-patient communication regarding difficult decisions at the end of life. Because of competing time interests, discussions regarding advance directives and "code status" are often rushed and lack tailored information regarding individual patient prognosis from an experienced provider. My prior work has looked at variations in DNR/DNI order writing among intensive care units in the United States. I am currently conducting survey and qualitative research regarding end-of-life discussions and advance directives among seriously ill outpatients. My hypothesis is that many patients have a limited understanding of the options available as well as the implications of the option they select. Ultimately, I plan to develop interventions to improve patient and surrogate understanding of the various treatment options near the end of life, including the use of default options in advance directives for seriously ill patients.
