Abstract

The article offers suggestions for nurses and midwives regarding planning of discharge of paitation under end-of-life care. Topics include recognising the patient end of their life being a key consideration, sensitive communication needs to take place between the dying person, those identified as important to them and members of the health care team, and patients have a right to be involve in decisions about the care given to the extent of the patient's desired involvement.
