A multigenerational study on the correlation of values and advance directives

Ethics and Behavior 2 (1):51 – 59 (1992)
The development of the Values History instrument for use in advance directive decision making has raised the question of the importance of values in eliciting advance directives. This pilot study examines the relationship between the domains of values and advance directives drawn from the Values History in three generation intrafamily triads. Significant correlations between values and advance directives were found primarily within the youngest generation. Results reveal a relatively high familiarity by the participants of the various established forms of advance directives. Also, a significant percentage of parents and grand- parents was found to have signed some form of advance directive.
