Palliative care practice requires ethical sensitivity and understanding. At the same time the very existence of palliative care calls for ethical explanation.

Ethics and palliative care meet over some vital issues: the good death, sedation at the end of life, requests for euthanasia, futile treatment, and the role of research. Yet palliative care appears uncertain about its goals and there is evidence that its ethical underpinnings are changing. Likewise, the moral problems of palliative care are only partly served by the four principles of modern bioethics. This volume, with contributions by clinicians, ethicists, philosophers and social scientists, provides a picture of palliative care ethics in the European context.

It should be of interest to those involved in the delivery and management of palliative care services, as well as to students and researchers.
