RAMOS POZON, Sergio  and  ROMAN MAESTRE, Begoña. Advance directives on patients with schizophrenia: a tool for maximize autonomy. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.121, pp.21-35. ISSN 2340-2733.

In this paper we pretend to analyze the question referent to advance directives, although not in the end of life, but both during the life and in psychiatric context as schizophrenia First, we describe what the basic features of the advance directives are. Second, as we wish to focus in the mental illness, we compare the advance directives with advance directives in psychiatry and we expose the differences and similarities. Also, we develop which is the content and utility of advance directives. Finally, we make a critical assessment of the advance directives.

Keywords : advance directives; schizophrenia; bioethics.
