directives are valuable to patients and health care providers alike because they
minimize conflict between family and health care providers by clarifying and
respecting patients' wishes.

- Contrast the limitations and scope of authority of a patient's
appointed health care agent.
- Identify the components of a health care

wishes using different case scenarios.
