Euthanasia -- Foreseeing Death or Intending Death?
Nursing Standard. 1997 Feb 12; 11(21): 45-48.
This article explores decision making in relation to the treatment or non-treatment of seriously ill patients, and offers a philosophical framework with which to examine some of the issues. The author explains the doctrine of double effect and discusses what constitutes 'ordinary' and 'extra-ordinary' care. The need to explore the issue of the 'intent' of the decision-makers is emphasised.
