PMID:  10163016     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article details methods developed to facilitate patients' understanding and execution of an advance directive (e.g., living will, treatment preferences, and durable power of attorney for healthcare). The approach takes advantage of the computerization of patient records, using automatically generated e-mail messages sent to an advance directives consultation team.
