End-of-Life care has changed dramatically in the twenty- first century. However, the Christian’s obligation, arising from the theological and pastoral tradition within our faith still calls us to the corporal works of mercy – caring for the sick and dying. Nurses and other health professionals often face ethical challenges as they care for persons at the end of life.
This presentation will:
– Examine the ways that end-of-life care has changed in this century
– Root responsibility to care for those at end of life in the Catholic moral tradition
– Explore specific ways to address the ethical challenges they face as they care for persons at the end of life
