Palliative care and Euthanasia

  1. Hi everyone,

    This is my first time posting on allnurses.com. I am a final year nursing student at Napier University, Edinburgh.

    Part of my coursework involves selecting one of the World Health Organisation palliative care principles. I have chosen 'intends neither to hasten or postpone death.' My essay will provide a literature review and analyse wether euthanasia has any place within palliative care - What are your views on this?

    How does the above discussion relate to clinical practice?

    Hi... I dont know an awful lot about palliative Care, but in my area (Wirral) we use the Liverpool Palliative Care Pathway, which is all researched.


    I dont know if the link to the Liverpool Marie Curie helps but you might find some useful research there or contacts.

    Good luck!
