The resolution of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) which is the therapeutic range for the terminally ill is published today (31) in the Official Gazette rules, who prevail from this Friday (31) establish criteria for The use of treatments considered invasive or painful in cases where there is no possibility of recovery. In practice, the patient will be able to register on the record itself which wants to undergo medical procedures at the end of life.

The call will advance directive is the desire of the patient record in a document, which provides support to legal and ethical compliance guidance. The living will is optional and can be done at any time of life - even for people in perfect health condition - and may be modified or revoked at any time.

According to Resolution 1.995/12, new technological resources enable the adoption of disproportionate measures that prolong the suffering of the terminally ill patient without benefit.

The text also highlights the lack of regulation on advance directives from the patient's will in the context of medical ethics Brazilian.

Medical Ethics Code, in force since April 2010, prohibits the health professional to shorten life, even at the request of the patient or a legal representative - a practice known as euthanasia. However, it is anticipated that, in cases of incurable and irreversible and terminal medical conditions, your doctor may offer palliative care available and appropriate (orthothanasia).

Yesterday (30), via note, CFM said the policy instrument will advance bears no relation to euthanasia, a practice condemned by doctors and by the Brazilian Federal Council of Medicine and as such constitutes a crime and must be fought and punished.
