PLANNING FOR THE END OF LIFE CAN BE A VERY DIFFICULT PROCESS.

Planning for the end of life can be a very difficult process. Some questions that may come up are; where you want to spend your final days? , Which treatments you plan to continue until your final day? , And what type of palliative care and hospice care you wish to receive. My research proposal is addressing end of life decisions and the fine line between religious beliefs and proper medical practices. Some hard decisions to address are; decisions about withholding or withdrawing treatment in the absence of reversible causes of deterioration. Decisions about withholding treatment are commonly faced when the patients are entering the terminal phase. Another question to ask is, when does pain and suffering reach its limit and deaths become the best option. Who makes the decision on discontinuing treatment of stop of medical assistance? Deciding what end-of-life care best suits your needs when you are healthy can help those close to you make the right choices when the time comes.
