  1. Search the Internet and find a company that offers medical professional liability (MPL) policies in your state for your area of practice.
    1. Provide a link to the company. Summarize their available coverage and limits of coverage. What optional coverage is available for an additional premium? Do they offer occurrence or claims-made coverage? Do they offer a period of “tail” coverage that extends coverage for a set amount of time—e.g., five years—after the policy ends?
    2. View their application and summarize the kind of information you would have to provide. What types of specialties do they want to know about? What kinds past history factors must you declare?
  2. Jackson is a 25-year-old male who fell through the ice while playing hockey with his friends at a local pond. Although he had been under the ice for at least 10 minutes, he was resuscitated by first responders. After 5 days on life support at the hospital, his attending physician declares Jackson in a persistent vegetative state. Jackson’s wife agrees to discontinue life support, but she is surprised to discover that Jackson had signed up to be an organ donor when he renewed his driver’s license. After reviewing the benefits of organ donation, the hospital’s organ donor specialist explains that in this state, Jackson’s signed driver’s license is a legal document expressing his wishes. Jackson’s wife, however, cannot tolerate the thought and demands his body remain intact. She insists that while they never spoke about the issue, she is certain it must be a mistake. What should be done in this case? Explain the legal issues. How could this situation have been prevented?
  3. You’ve been asked by the senior physician at your clinic to put together a list of resources patients can use to get information about advance directives, including living wills, durable powers of attorney, healthcare proxies, and DNR orders. Describe each of these in clear layman’s terms (your own words). Choose 6 resources you’d include and write a 4-6 sentence description of each one underneath its link.
  4. Every 10 minutes, another name goes on the list of Americans waiting for an organ transplant, according to Dr. Todd Pesavento, of The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. One provision of the Revised Uniform Anatomical Gift Act ( 2006) permits the use of life support systems at or near death for the purpose of maximizing procurement opportunities of organs medically suitable for transplantation. The Act overrides advance directives about withholding and withdrawing end-of-life support. Although this may help procure more organ donations, there are ethical factors to consider. Think back to the ethical decision-making models we discussed. Evaluate the ethical good of using life support systems to increase organ donations versus the ethical harm of denying appropriate palliative end-of-life care. Note: You will find the pertinent recommended article in this week’s reading and preparation helpful for this question.
  5. Investigate pros and cons about physician-assisted suicide/euthanasia. Which argument or arguments do you find most compelling? Summarize each and explain your thinking. Note: The pertinent recommended website in this week’s reading and preparation is a good place to start.
  6. A patient’s daughter is upset and worried about her mother’s declining health. The health care team has determined that Mom’s illness can no longer be controlled. She is no longer benefitting from treatment. They have recommended stopping medical testing, intervention, and active treatment in favor of hospice. The daughter is in tears and shares that this “feels like giving up on mom.” She confides that she has heard hospice is “pushed” by the health insurance companies as an excuse to discontinue expensive treatment. Explain what the daughter needs to know about hospice, including its benefits, goals, and common misconceptions.
