"With current technology, the accurate diagnosis of most diseases and their prognosis are rapidly made, affording a patient an opportunity for choices," said Dr. Jim Turner, medical director for the Richard G. Lugar Center for Rural Health at Union Hospital and a panelist for Tuesday's discussion. "If a debilitating and fatal outcome is anticipated, patients deserve to understand their legal and medical options."
