Project 3 As a health care professional, you will be with people at the beginning of their life, when they are born, and with them at the end of their life, when they pass away. You will see people as they are born and as they pass away. Because you will be exposed to these areas of life and the individuals themselves you must be comfortable and able to remain professional during these circumstances. While speaking to someone who you know is passing away would be difficult and sad I am comfortable doing it.
PALLIATIVE CANCER ETHICS AND CHALLENGES With the above mentioned backdrop on palliative care in India, it is a highly important to imitate the Western world’s way of palliative care. Palliative cancer care has become mandatory for physicians in formulating a systematic plan of patient care. These modern methods of pain relief require an analysis of some of the ethical issues with a focus on palliative care. These issues include: • Relief of pain and suffering • Autonomy and consent • Multi-specialist care The above mentioned issues are some points that are to be considered by modern medical practitioners who are caring for patients.
When a patient is at the end of life it is very important to value the patients self dignity and their decisions at the mere end of their lives. The end of life care is to relieve the weight of the patient 's shoulders physically and mentally. I approve of end of life caring. Basic end of life care is summarized by improving the care of quality of life and dignity of the ill person. The important themes to good ethics of end of life care is a combination of human rights,respect,dignified care,and privacy.
Ethical subjectivism, also known as moral subjectivism, is a philosophical theory. This approach supports euthanasia in the sense of allowing the truth and rights of an individual to remain at a different level. Ethical subjectivism is a theory that suggests that moral truths are determined at an individual level, therefore making it your reality. Euthanasia is the painless killing of an aggressively tormented dying patient. I believe that euthanasia must be legal, and I agree with the whole logic and the procedure.
Assisted Suicided Every 16.2 minutes, there are people in the world that take their own life by killing themselves.(Purity, 9) There are are over 40,000 people every year that commit suicide.(Purity, 10) Suicide is the leading cause of death for those of the age of 15-24 years old.(Purity, 13) However, coming up in the media through the last 20 years has been the idea of ending your life by assisted suicide.

Nursing, and everything that it entails, cannot be easily described in just one simple word or phrase. It goes beyond the meaning of a profession and the stereotypical definition of treating the ill. Nursing is the “protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations” (American Nurses Association, 2010, p. 1). Therefore, it is a career that requires dedication, passion, critical thinking, and knowledge. It demands commitment and an understanding of its core values and concepts, as well as the nurse’s own personal philosophy and principles.
The price to pay for assisted suicide costs a lot more than just money. Some of the elderly or sick people believe that they would become a financial burden to their friends and loved ones. In fact, in one of the states where assisted suicide is allowed, a poll was taken. The poll revealed that 66% of citizens would only consider assisted suicide because of being a financial burden on their loved ones. One person even says “If I had terminal cancer, I had a few weeks to live, I was in tremendous amount of pain - if they just effectively wanted to turn off the switch and legalize that by legalizing euthanasia, I'd want that” (Key).

There were several classes I attended that significantly impacted my views about death, dying, life, and living. However, for me I found it quite difficult to choose just one to highlight since they all seemed to make an impact on my thoughts and ideas in one-way or another. Nonetheless there were three classes that stood out a little bit more then the rest such as the Shifrin event, the class about bullying, and when the guest speaker came to discuss ethical issues during end of life care. From each of these classes I was able to take away some pertinent information about death, dying, life, and living. I found the lecture about ethical issues during end of life care very informative.
End of life care - is the care given to a person with an advanced, life-limiting illness which is not curable, is about managing the pain and other symptoms aimed to improve the quality of care at the end of life.
