Empirical Fallacies in the Debate on Substituted Judgment.

Johansson, Mats LU and Broström, Linus LU (2014) In Health Care Analysis 22(1). p.73-81
Abstract
According to the Substituted Judgment Standard a surrogate decision maker ought to make the decision that the incompetent patient would have made, had he or she been competent. This standard has received a fair amount of criticism, but the objections raised are often wide of the mark. In this article we discuss three objections based on empirical research, and explain why these do not give us reason to abandon the Substituted Judgment Standard.
