PHI 413V Week 4 Extra Question
The Pew Research Center has conducted surveys on end-of-life decisions finding “…most Americans say there are some circumstances in which doctors and nurses should allow a patient to die. At the same time, however, a growing minority says that medical professionals should do everything possible to save a patient’s life in all circumstances.” Take a look at the article and survey results:
“Views on End-of-Life Medical Treatments” by Pew Research Center http://www.pewforum.org/2013/11/21/views-on-end-of-life-medical-treatments/
