Borderline Case: Ethics of Patient Care

For this discussion, you will be applying defining attributes to an actual patient case. Please listen to the NPR podcast, “If You Have Dementia, Can You Hasten Death As You Wished?” Additionally, review Wilkinson’s defining attributes (found in the Wilkinson (1997) reading in the Learning Materials section). See attachments.
