  • I am thrilled its gone, or going. The Review entitled "More Care, less Pathway" is excellent. Nutrition/hydration to be decided by patient, unless they cant swallow. If incapacitated, Advocate decides. IV/Sub-cut to be decided by clinician. All pretty fair and there is to be more emphysis of palliative care, more training for medical and nursing staff and better definition of "Dying". Great news.
