Catholic Guidelines For End of Life Decisions
Watch the Presentation: Video of the panel discussion is available on demand.
End of life decisions can present emotional, medical and religious questions and dilemmas for the dying patient and their family.
As advancements in medical science can prolong life, questions and confusion abound surrounding what the Church teaches about ordinary and extraordinary means, hydration, pain relief, and palliative care.
