In this 2020 article in the SMU Law Review I make the case for video advance directives as a valuable, additional way for individuals to record their health care treatment preferences.
Supplementing a traditional advance directive with a video advance directive increases the likelihood that surrogates and clinicians will understand and follow the patient’s recorded wishes in the way the patient intended.
Perhas the most distinctive video advance care planning solution is MIDEO, which stands for My Informed Decision on vidEO. Unlike other AD videos, MIDEO is packaged in a usable format for medical providers and makes sure wishes are clear to the intended audience which is the clinician.
Dr. Stanley Terman helps his patients record video advance directives. Like MIDEO, he facilitates and guides these discussions. Here is one example of a discussion with patient Pan Haskins.
Canadian Virtual Hospice shares several videos where patients explain what would be a good death for them.
