End-of-life Decisions in Stroke

End-of-life Decisions in Stroke

Outcomes in Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH)

Project - Outcomes in Intracerebral HemorrhageFrequent early decisions to limit life-sustaining treatments in intracerebral hemorrhage have the potential to result in a “self fulfilling prophecy”, where physician predictions of poor outcome come true as a result of treatment limitations rather than the natural history of the disease.  Dr. Morgenstern and Dr. Zahuranec have collaborated with investigators at other institutions to perform a prospective study to determine the true outcomes for ICH patients who do not have early treatment limitations.

Prognosis and End-of-Life Decision Making in Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Project- Prognosis and end of life decisionsDr. Zahuranec is performing a mixed-methods study to better understand the how family members make medical decisions for individuals with ICH who are unable to make their own decisions.
