Summary The medical situation is critical, even life-threatening. The doctor refuses to offer or to continue providing "futile" medical treatment. The patient, or the patient's family, insists that everything possible must be done. Who should decide? In this book, philosopher and bioethicist Susan B. Rubin examines this controversial issue.
