Focusing on findings from studies conducted at the Coma and Disorders of Consciousness Research Centre (cdoc.org.uk), Professor Jenny Kitzinger discusses best interests decision-making about life-sustaining treatment for patients who are unable to give, or refuse, consent on their own behalf. Professor Kitzinger highlights the importance of trying to find out what the patients themselves would have wanted, and shares her personal experience of how decisions were made about her own sister after a road traffic collision.

This lecture was filmed at the RSM in London for the 'Choice at the end of life: Current practice and overseas developments' event on the 9th February 2018.
