Abstract: For physicians discussing advance care planning with patients with life-limiting illness, it is important to understand the stability of the patients' preferences for life-sustaining treatments and the factors that predict a change in preferences. Our objectives were to investigate 1-year stability of preferences regarding CPR and mechanical ventilation (MV) for outpatients with advanced COPD, chronic heart failure (CHF), or chronic renal failure (CRF) and to identify predictors of changes in preferences.
