Mumma, Christina M.; Benoliel, Jeanne Quint
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v15 n3 p275-88 1984-85
Used patient records of 184 adults to examine the relationship of cause of dying, length of hospital stay, and age to medical treatment effort orientation and work effort. Findings showed medical treatment orientation was overwhelmingly toward the cure end of the care/cure continuum, despite no-code designations or terminal conditions. (JAC)
