Guidance for physicians who wish to influence policy development on determination of death by neurologic criteria

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Physicians have a long-standing obligation to consider social implications of their practice and its potential influences on health policy. One example of a practice's influence on policy is determining death by neurologic criteria. By lobbying policymakers, maintaining their diagnostic skills, participating in national medical societies, and contributing to robust discourse, physicians can positively influence practice and policy about death determination by neurologic criteria.
