Refusal of Palliative Care/Bioethics

Uploaded by :

A 9 page research paper that offers a hypothetical example of a clinical bioethics case report, concerning Joyce, a 68-year-old woman suffering from metastasized liver cancer, who refuses pain medication. Joyce is in agony and her torturous existence, her moans and the fact that she writhes in pain, is affecting all those around her, her daughter, the healthcare professionals responsible for her care, and her fellow patients. Discussion and bioethical analysis is offered. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
