End of Life Ethics in a Changing World

As attitudes, technology, and laws around death and dying have evolved in the United States, the ethical challenges facing hospice and palliative care have grown more complex, particularly in the context of a system of regulations established 40 years ago. This important volume of work by experts in ethics and end-of-life care examines issues of hospice care for children and teens; voluntary stopping of eating and drinking (VSED) and medical aid in dying (MAiD); justice and inclusion; the development of hospice ethics committees; provision of hospice and bereavement care via telehealth; and a host of other timely topics that every hospice team member is likely to encounter. Through both scholarly and personal perspectives, end-of-life care professionals will find wisdom and guidance to inform ethical practice.

  • Providing Ethical Guidance to Surrogate Decision Makers
  • Patient Choice as Death Approaches
