dc.description.abstractIn this lecture, we will consider the ethical principles and practical aspects of withdrawing life-sustaining treatments in cases of critically ill patients for whom such interventions are realized to have no benefit. The discussion is couched in considerations surrounding family meetings in which sensitivity and compassion are stressed. We affirm that the physician and medical team’s beneficence and virtue should be the guiding ethos for the principles of decision making, and we lament the erosion of the physician as a beneficent shepherd and guide in such discussions, in today’s culture.
