Palliative sedation: from the family perspective

Published in American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. 2013, vol. 30, no. 8, p. 786-90
Abstract Palliative sedation (PS) is a treatment option in case of refractory symptoms at the end of life. The emotional impact on nurses and doctors has been widely studied. We explore the experience of family members during a PS procedure. Method: An anonymous questionnaire was sent to the closest family members (n = 17) of patients who died while receiving palliative sedation.
PMID: 23324413
