AMDA resolution calls for ‘comfort feeding’ of certain residents with dementia

Members of AMDA–The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine should adopt a policy of “comfort feeding” for certain residents with dementia rather than honor advance directives that indicate criteria that otherwise would trigger an order to stop feeding them, recommends a resolution passed by the AMDA House of Delegates during the organization’s annual conference.
