Part B- Advanced Directives & DNRs
Research the law of Advance Directives and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Orders in your state. State laws vary. To research your state law (I am in New York State), go to: http://www.caringinfo.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3289 (Links to an external site.).
First, name the state that you are addressing. Remember to cite the state laws (statutes, cases and regulations) in the reference list.
Second, choose and discuss three differences between Advance Directives and Do Not Resuscitate Orders in your state. Explain the rationale behind the differences.
Third, explain any different approaches you might use explaining these documents to patients and family members based on their educational level.

Part C- Informed Consent
Research NY state’s laws on Informed Consent. Then research NY state’s statutes or initiatives or proposals related to Aid-in-Dying. Clearly name the states that you are discussing which is NY. Provide an explanation of both. Then provide a conclusion addressing whether the two doctrines reconcile or interface. In other words, provide a thorough analysis of whether or not they will work together.
