Abstract:     
Although the basic structure of Ohio's Advance Directive Statutes is sound, many of the actual provisions contain excessive, burdensome, and often incomprehensible restrictions on patient-centered decisionmaking. This article presents redrafting suggestions from the Ohio Bioethics Task Force designed to clarify, simplify and focus Ohio law.
