Chapter 8: Palliative Sedation and the Rule of Double Effect

Daniel P. Sulmasy and Nessa Coyle also address the issue of pain management in their chapter on palliative sedation.

Using the rule of double effect, Sulmasy and Coyle offer a careful analysis of the ethical principles that should guide the use of palliative sedation.
