Abstract

Myths have developed surrounding the law and ethical principles in end of life care, which can make care provision at the end of life complex and fraught with potential dilemmas. This article examines three of the most common myths related to the provision of palliative care and highlights their inadequacy when set against the ethical and legal principles on which end of life care pathways are based.
