Nurses must ‘reflect’ new end of life care standards

Comment

ANONYMOUS 9 JULY, 2016 11:18 AM Lots of truth in your post, unlike in some others. And lots of incorrect assertions, about my level of understanding, as well. Yes, you cannot ask a patient in CPA, if he would want CPR to be attempted. So, you must ask, or he must tell you, in advance - see: http://www.bmj.com/content/350/bmj.h2640/rr-2 Part of your comment, fits in with my '999 paramedics cannot make defensible section-4 MCA best-interests decisions whatever documents you aim at them' argument: but, family carers, could make defensible best-interests decisions. Look at 'poser no 11' in my series at: http://www.dignityincare.org.uk/Discuss_and_debate/Discussion_forum/?obj=viewThread&threadID=692&forumID=45 If you can get the link to work in NT. Links sent to BMJ always work - but not invariably here on NT. But what really raises my hackles, is that many professionals seem to consider that family carers can legitimately be distrusted by default: http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2230/rr-7 http://www.dignityincare.org.uk/Discuss_and_debate/Discussion_forum/?obj=viewThread&threadID=859&forumID=45 As for 'then you might understand what you are talking about' well - I do understand, what I'm talking about: http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i1494/rr-3 http://www.bmj.com/content/351/bmj.h6575/rr-0 http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i222/rr-0 And I do 'argue about ethics' - see the very contemporary: http://www.bmj.com/content/354/bmj.i3806/rr which was posted on theBMJ only yesterday - and which is an invitation for a discussion about law and ethics 'I've been having with' David Oliver to continue via BMJ rapid responses.
