End-of-life preferences in Hawaii.
|Title:||End-of-life preferences in Hawaii.|

|Issue Date:||Dec 2000|
|Abstract:||Questions on end-of-life preferences were included in two statewide, random-sample telephone surveys. Findings suggest that Hawaii residents are similar to mainlanders on their rates of advance directive completion, their preference for dying at home, their desire for hospice care when dying, and their support for legalization of aid in dying. Physicians are encouraged to ask these questions directly of their patients as a first step to improving end-of-life care.|
