Abstract: This project is a thesis on the bioethical considerations involved in moving a terminally ill patient to End of Life Care, commonly known as comfort care. Literature reviews have been carefully integrated, as well as a thorough investigation on the foundational structure involved in making morally sound bioethical judgments. Particular consideration is given to distinguishing the point at which it is time to transition the focus from fighting a patient’s illness to providing the patient with as much comfort as possible as they move towards death, making sure to lend support while exemplifying the foundational moral principles involved.; Extracted text
